Overview

What We're Reading Now
"This book tells of a young boy, Emil Sinclair's, descent into a darker world led by a classmate, Demian. It is a world of questioning what was believed to be the truth and delving deeper and beyond what is conventially known and accepted."
Katelin Edge - Books-A-Million, Lafayette, LA

In Demian, one of the great writers of the twentieth century tells the dramatic story of young, docile Emil Sinclair's descent--led by precocious shoolmate Max Demian--into a secret and dangerous world of petty crime and revolt against convention and eventual awakening to selfhood.

"The electrifying influence exercised on a whole generation just after the First World War by Demian...is unforgettable. With uncanny accuracy this poetic work struck the nerve of the times and called forth grateful rapture from a whole youthful generation who believed that an interpreter of their innermost life had risen from their own midst."
-- From the Introduction by Thomas Mann
