Klaus Mann's novel on Tchaikovsky

Has anybody on this forum perhaps read Klaus Mann's novel "Pathetic Symphony" or perhaps any other novels on Tchaikovsky?

Ive heard it said that this is a fictionalized portrayal of Tchaikovsky's life tho there is no mention of that fact in the reviews it gets focuses mainly on the two protoganists ,Tchaikovsky and his benefactress Madame von Meck...its been said that the questionable and highly controversial movie "The Music Lovers" is based at least in part on this work..I read it too long ago to remember anything about it...nor did I know enough about the composer's life to compare the book with the reality...
