Synopsis: This is the third volume of Elias Canetti's autobiography, following "The Tongue Set Free" and "The Torch in My Ear". It is set in Vienna between 1931 and 1937, at a time when the European catastrophe was already clear to anyone with eyes to see. The book is both a portrait of its time and an intellectual and spiritual autobiography. Canetti describes his relationships with Herman Broch, Robert Musil, Fritz Wortruba, the composer Alban Berg, and Alma Mahler.

About the Author: ELIAS CANETTI, winner of the 1981 Nobel Prize for Literature, was one of the major intellectual figures and polymaths of the twentieth century. A master of many genres, he was known especially for his novel, Auto Da Fe, and his great work of social theory, Crowds and Power. Canetti's genius is, however, perhaps nowhere more evident than in the three volumes of his autobiography, now reissued as Granta paperbacks.
