Product Details

Praise

“[Zweig is a] writer who understands perfectly the life he is describing, and who has great analytic gifts . . . . He has achieved the very considerable feat of inventing, in his description of the game of chess, a metaphor for the terribly grim game he is playing with his Nazi tormentors . . . the case history here is no longer that of individuals; it is the case history of Europe.” —Stephen Spender, The New York Review of Books

“Always [Zweig] remains essentially the same, revealing in all . . . mediums his subtlety of style, his profound psychological knowledge and his inherent humaneness.” —Barthold Fles, The New Republic

“Zweig possesses a dogged psychological curiosity, a brutal frankness, a supreme impartiality . . . [a] concentration of talents.” —Herbert Gorman, The New York Times Book Review

“His writing reveals his sympathy for fellow human beings.” —Ruth Franklin, London Review of Books
