Product description


'Will Stone's translation perfectly captures [Zweig's] cultivated Viennese flavour and pacy aphoristic elegance' The Tablet

'An invaluable addition to Zweig's canon, casting as much light on the author s own preoccupation with personal and individual liberty as it does on Montaigne'

'Zweig's accumulated historical and cultural studies remain a body of achievement almost too impressive to take in' -- Clive James

'A beautiful, perhaps even the best, reflection on the great French essayist'
Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

'Thanks to Stone's assiduous translation, Zweig's fascinating meditation on the writer in whom he saw himself mirrored appears now for the first time in English'
Publishers Weekly

'Stefan Zweig's time of oblivion is over for good... it's good to have him back' -- Salman Rushdie
The New York Times

'[During his lifetime] arguably the most widely read and translated serious author in the world'

--John Fowles

From 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.
