'A tender fable... Dorothy Thompson's translation is enthralling. It is, as his champion Michael Hofmann explains in a thought-provoking afterword, 'regarded as Roth's most perfect book'.' --Independent
'Extraordinary... this is a poetically written novel, drawing from his own experience but speaking of the eternal truths of the human condition. A powerful work by a titan of early 20th-century literature.' --Herald
About the Author
JOSEPH ROTH (1894-1939) was the great elegist of the cosmopolitan, tolerant and doomed Central European culture that flourished in the dying days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Born into a Jewish family in Galicia, on the eastern edge of the empire, he was a prolific political journalist and novelist. On Hitler's assumption of power, he was obliged to leave Germany for Paris, where he died in poverty a few years later. His books include What I Saw, Job, The White Cities, The String of Pearls and The Radetzky March, all published by Granta Books. MICHAEL HOFMANN is the highly acclaimed translator of Joseph Roth, Wolfgang Koeppen, Kafka and Brecht, and the author of several books of poems and book of criticism. He has translated nine previous books by Joseph Roth. He teaches at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
