'Among his supreme achievements' New York Review of Books

We live through myriads of seconds, yet it is always one, just one, that casts our entire inner world into turmoil

When Roland, a young student newly arrived at university, meets an inspirational teacher, he finds himself swept into his world of literature and learning But as he is drawn closer to this remarkable man, he senses his mentor pulling away from him - sometimes even seeming to hate him... Roland is baffled, but when he is finally made to see the truth it will change him forever.

Confusion is a supremely powerful tale of suppressed desire and passionate friendship from one of the twentieth century's greatest writers.

Review:

'Confusion is one of his finest and most exemplary works... a marvellously poised account of misunderstood motives, thwarted love, and sublimated desires... a perfect reminder of, or introduction to, Zweig's economy and subtlety as a writer' --Times Literary Supplement

'Passion and dedication... Outside the works of Plato, I don't think I have ever read a better or more honest account of what ill always remain at the heart of teaching' --Jewish Chronicle

'Among his supreme achievements' --New York Review of Books

About the Author:

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.
