One of the joys of recent years is the translation into English of Stefan Zweig's stories. They have an astringency of outlook and a mastery of scale that I find enormously enjoyable. (Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare with the Amber Eyes)
One hardly knows where to begin in praising Zweig's work. (Ali Smith)
Zweig belongs with those masters of the novella-Maupassant, Turgenev, Chekhov. (Paul Bailey)
One of the masters of the short story (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)
The stories are as page-turning as they are subtle... Compelling (Guardian)
Stefan Zweig... was a talented writer and ultimately another tragic victim of wartime despair. This rich collection... confirms how good he could be (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)
Stefan Zweig was born in 1881 in Vienna, into a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family. He studied in Berlin and Vienna and was first known as a poet and translator, then as a biographer. Between the wars, Zweig was an international bestseller with a string of hugely popular novellas including Letter from an Unknown Woman, Amok and Fear. In 1934, with the rise of Nazism, he left Austria, and lived in London, Bath and New York-a period during which he produced his most celebrated works: his only novel, Beware of Pity, and his memoir, The World of Yesterday. He eventually settled in Brazil, where in 1942 he and his wife were found dead in an apparent double suicide. Much of his work is available from Pushkin Press.
