Product Details

Praise

“What did Zweig have that brought him the fanatical devotion of millions of readers, the admiration of Herman Hesse, the invitation to give the eulogy at the funeral of Sigmund Freud? To learn that, we would have to have a biography that illuminated all aspects of his work, that read all of his books, and that challenged, rather than accepted, the apparent modesty of his statements about his life and work.” – Benjamin Moser, Bookforum

“Touching and delightful. Those adjectives are not meant as faint praise. Zweig may be especially appealing now because rather than being a progenitor of big ideas, he was a serious entertainer, and an ardent and careful observer of habits, foibles, passions and mistakes.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times 

“Zweig’s readability made him one of the most popular writers of the early twentieth century all over the world, with translations into thirty languages. His lives of Mary Stuart and Marie Antoinette were international bestsellers.” — Julie Kavanagh, The Economist Intelligent Life

“Zweig’s accumulated historical and cultural studies, whether in essay or monograph form, remain a body of achievement almost too impressive to take in… Full-sized books on Marie-Antoinette, Mary Stuart, and Magellan were international best sellers.” — Clive James, Cultural Amnesia

“Stefan Zweig cherished the everyday imperfections and frustrated aspirations of the men and women he analysed with such affection and understanding.” — Paul Bailey, Times Literary Supplement

“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, Guardian

“Fortunately, the Pushkin Press has been publishing some of Zweig’s works in fluent translations and handsome editions … My advice is that you should go out at once and buy his books.” — Anthony Daniels, The Sunday Telegraph

“This latest volume in Pushkin Press’s wonderful edition of Zweig [is] effortlessly great.” — David Sexton, Evening Standard
