Product description

Review

An extraordinary work...there's a volcanic energy to Zweig's writing...wholly mesmerising. ― The Herald

A far more powerful, worthwhile and enjoyable novel than our present bestsellers -- David Sexton ―
Evening Standard

This haunting novel is a monument to Zweig's skill ―
Sunday Telegraph

Language that pierces both brain and heart ―
The Spectator

Stefan Zweig was a late and magnificent bloom from the hothouse of
fin de siecle Vienna...The posthumous publication of a Zweig novel affords an opportunity to revisit this gifted writer...The Post Office Girl is captivating. ― The Wall Street Journal

Zweig is one of the masters of the short story and novella, and by 'one of the masters' I mean that he's up there with Maupassant, Chekhov, James, Poe, or indeed anyone you care to name. -- Nicholas Lezard ―
Guardian

A brilliant writer. ―
New York Times

I do think this is exceptional.There are scenes of hope and despair that are so lucid, powerful and alive. A classic. -- Esther Freud

Review

'An extraordinary work ... there's a volcanic energy to Zweig's writing ... wholly mesmerising.'
