Product description

Review

Zweig is the most adult of writers; civilised, urbane, but never jaded or cynical; a realist who none the less believed in the possibility—the necessity—of empathy (The Independent)

Zweig’s genius as a storyteller encompasses the brainy as well as those of average intelligence, the very rich and the desperately poor. He deserves to be famous again, and for good (The Times Literary Supplement)

To read Zweig is to be in the presence of a properly mature writer, for all that his characters are often in the grip of highly inappropriate desires (The Guardian)

One hardly knows where to begin in praising Zweig’s work. One gets the impression that he actively preferred to write about women, and about the great moral crises that send shivers down the spines of polite society (Nicholas Lezard The Guardian)

In the 1920s and 30s, Stefan Zweig was one of the most famous writers in the world. Thanks to the enterprising Pushkin Press, it is now possible to read the novellas on which his reputation must finally depend (Paul Bailey Times Literary Supplement)

Fortunately, the Pushkin Press has been publishing some of Zweig’s works in fluent translations and handsome editions ... My advice is that you should go out at once and buy his books (Anthony Daniels The Sunday Telegraph)

About the Author

Stefan Zweig was born in 1881 in Vienna, a member of a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family. He studied in Berlin and Vienna and was first known as a translator and later as a biographer. Zweig travelled widely, living in Salzburg between the wars, and enjoying literary fame. His stories and novellas were collected in 1934. In the same year, with the rise of Nazism, he briefly moved to London, taking British citizenship. After a short period in New York, he settled in Brazil where in 1942 he and his wife were found dead in bed in an apparent double suicide.
