The Rathbones Folio Prize 2022 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm The Magician by Colm Tóibín as the winner of the Rathbones Folio Prize 2022.

Reimagining the life of the Nobel Prize-winning German novelist Thomas Mann, Colm Tóibín’s evocative, dark and beautifully crafted novel is at once a mesmerising portrait of one of the 20th century’s literary titans and a meditation on the interplay between a private life, creative work, and history.

 

‘Colm Tóibín’s The Magician is such a capacious, generous, ambitious novel, taking in a great sweep of 20th century history, yet rooted in the intimate detail of one man’s private life.’
