When the Nazis began destroying lives across Europe and artists became state enemies, Nelly Kroeger, a tall, blonde ex-barmaid, and writer and political activist Heinrich Mann - twenty-seven years her senior and top of the list at Goebbels' book-burnings - fled together, first to France, then to Los Angeles. Interweaving stories from their friends, relatives and literary contemporaries - Thomas Mann, Bertolt Brecht, James Joyce, Franz Kafka and Virginia Woolf - "House of Exile" tells the remarkable story of Nelly and Heinrich, a couple divided by class and their own families, and of their unconventional love in a time of war.
