"It's just a masterpiece. When I read it I thought, how is it that we don't know about this-how is it that I am the only person I know who's read this book?" Wes Anderson, on Stefan Zweig's Beware of Pity

Contents: A Conversation with Wes Anderson-Wes Anderson discusses Zweig's life and work with Zweig biographer George Prochnik. The World of Yesterday-Selected extracts from Zweig's memoir, an unrivalled evocation of bygone Europe. Beware of Pity-An extract from Zweig's only novel, a devastating depiction of the torment of the betrayal of both honour and love. Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Woman-One of Stefan Zweig's best-loved stories in full-a passionate tale of gambling, love and death.

Review:

The World of Yesterday is one of the greatest memoirs of the twentieth century, as perfect in its evocation of the world Zweig loved, as it is in its portrayal of how that world was destroyed. (David Hare)

Beware of Pity is the most exciting book I have ever read...a feverish, fascinating novel (Antony Beevor)

One of the joys of recent years is the translation into English of Stefan Zweig's stories. (Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare with the Amber Eyes)

I defy anyone to read these tasters of Zweig's work without being compelled to read on. Pushkin might as well do their readers all a favour and sell The Society of the Crossed Keys with a complete Zweig back catalogue. (Independent)

About the Author:

Stefan Zweig was born in 1881 in Vienna. He studied in Berlin and Vienna and, between the wars was an international bestselling author. With the rise of Nazism, he left Austria, and lived in London, Bath, New York and Brazil, where in 1942 he and his wife were found dead in an apparent double suicide.

Wes Anderson's films include Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom. He directed and wrote the screenplay for The Grand Budapest Hotel.
