    BioPeter Mann is a novelist and historian of Modern Europe. He is the author of the novel THE TORQUED MAN (Harper, 2022), about the double life of an Irish spy in wartime Berlin, and named one of The New Yorker's best books of 2022. Mann is interested in late 19th- and early 20th-century thought and literature, especially where they intersect with politics and the absurd. He is also a cartoonist. His comic "The Quixote Syndrome" ran as a weekly syndicated online feature on GoComics from 2014 to 2021.

    At Stanford, Mann teaches history and literature in the first-year Foundations sequence of the Masters of Liberal Arts program as well courses in Continuing Studies. Recent CS courses include "Modernism in the Metropolis: Artist and Intellectuals in the European City, 1848-1945" and "Modernity and its Discontents: European Thought and Culture from Fin
    de Si├Ęcle to World War II."
