Product description

Review

'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

'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

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.
