5.0 out of 5 stars A meditation on solitude, loneliness & fantasy, 15 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Flight Without End (Peter Owen Modern Classic) (Paperback)
One of the shortest of Joseph Roth's books it is none the less in some ways his most complete, rounded and flawless work. Its hero recounts an improbable (but thoroughly engrossing & hypnotic) sequence of events in a life which is really an endless voyage. Although there are elements of fairy-tale like fantasy which creep into the book (limpid simplistic style, unlikely developments), the harshness of the events and the grimness of the environment prevent the reader from either smiling or patronising the author. This book weaves an unforgettable spell, evoking fantasies seemingly born of profound loneliness & melancholy.
