Product Details

Praise

“A brilliant Austrian writer whose work brings to mind that of his compatriot Joseph Roth…a treat of prewar European literature” —Sylvia Brownrigg, The New York Times

“The latest novella available to English-speaking readers, Journey Into the Past—found among Zweig’s papers after his death and now published by New York Review Books Classics in a masterly translation by Anthea Bell and with an introduction by André Aciman…” —Words Without Borders 

Journey into the Past is vintage Stefan Zweig—lucid, tender, powerful and compelling.” —Chris Schuler, The Independent

“The art is in the telling…a powerful love story…Excellent Foreword by writer Paul Bailey” —David Herman, The Jewish Chronicle

“One hardly knows where to begin in praising Zweig’s work. One gets the impression that he actively preferred to write about women, and about the great moral crises that send shivers down the spines of polite society” —Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian

“My advice is that you should go out at once and buy his books” —Anthony Daniels, The Sunday Telegraph

“a brilliant writer.” —The New York Times

“Admired by readers as diverse as Freud, Einstein, Toscanini, Thomas Mann and Herman Goering.” —The New York Times

“A remarkable tour de force…this is a masterclass in the language of beautiful storytelling.” —Paul Blezard, The Lady

“Zweig belongs with three very different masters who each perfected the challenging art of the short story and the novella: Maupassant, Turgenev and Chekhov” —Paul Bailey
