In this magnificent collection of Stefan Zweig’s short stories the very best and worst of human nature are captured with sharp observation, understanding and vivid empathy. A knock on a door that forces a whole community to take flight, an aging womaniser who meets his match, a love soured into awful cruelty-these stories present a master at work, at the top of his form.
Translated by the award-winning Anthea Bell.
