Know that these are three loving stars given out of respect for what the novel accomplishes even though it s incomplete and most of the time aimless and wanderingConfessions of Felix Krull is Thomas Mann s attempt at the picaresue and Krull is something of a mix between Don uixote and Ignatius J Reilly from A Confederacy of Dunces Parts of the novel are laugh out loud funny not a gut reaction I ve ever had to a Mann novel I m thinking in particular of a scene that could have been cut from Dunces where Krull a character very much like M Gustave H from Wes Anderson s film The Grand Budapest Hotel that is a character whose sexuality has nothing to do with a desire for men or women both of whom are eually at his disposal but with his erotic appetite for romantic civility is seduced by an older woman a novelist who calls him a slave in bed and wants him to call her a whore imagine Don uixote s reaction to something like this The scene is hilarious because he truly thinks she s chosen him for his social graces and charm he s a hotel elevator operator at this pointMann conceived of the book in 1905 published it as a short story in 1911 and attempted a novel the year before he died Imagine how different the Mann of 1954 must have been from the kid who first put Krull to paper That sort of disparity between decades of intellectual and emotional transformation deranges the plot of this novel unfortunately You never really get a grip on the trajectory which can delight a reader if one senses movement toward crisis or conclusion But the many faces of Felix Krull are not as the title would suggest the masks of a confidence man but rather the personas of different actors in different stories whose paths simply refuse to intersect Ultimately I m not sure if it s worth the read unless you re a Mannophile like myself Hence the three loving stars

I had a sudden thought about this book which I had read some time ago which was how curious it was that a writer s last work was focused on a confidence trickster and his trickery when what is writing but a confidence trick created with the collusion of the reader As a result this is a book about fantasy and invention in which we might be best advised to trust nothing and to believe lessI wondered how far the subject of the book was a confession on the part of the author the Patriarch with bad relations with many of his children the husband with a taste for same sex relationshipsthe non political man who ended up in exile for political reasons all the same we can see the author as one who played at different identities as much as his fictional herosuch anyway were my idle thoughts on my way to a hospital out patient appointment as I wondered if my shirt and underwear would pass muster as Felix s did before the conscription board
