Drawing on a great wealth of newly available sources, this definitive biography recounts the eventful life of a great writer spoilt by success—a life lived in the shadow of two world wars, and which ended tragically in a suicide pact. Matuschek examines three major phases in the life of the world-famous Austrian author—his years of apprenticeship, his years of success as a professional working writer in Salzburg, and finally his years of exile in Britain, the USA and Brazil. Including the sort of personal detail conspicuously absent from Zweig’s memoir, and incorporating newly discovered documents, Matuschek’s biography offers us a privileged view into the private world of the master of psychological insight.
“Oliver Matuschek’s Zweig biography is a model of clarity and style.” - Frankfurter Allgemeine
