Weimar in Princeton: Thomas Mann and the Kahler Circle

This work treats Mann’s early years in America and his encounters with a group of highly gifted émigrés in Princeton, which came to be called the Kahler Circle, with Mann at its center. Chief among these émigrés were Mann’s best friend, Erich Kahler; Kahler’s best friend, Hermann Broch; and their much admired neighbor, Albert Einstein.
