Product Details


“Late Fame does surprise. It is ironic and restrained. . . . The narrative is astute on the bravado, politics and longing which compel literary dreamers at the mercy of their tentative aspirations.” —Eileen Battersby, The Irish Times

“Completed over a century ago but unpublished until now, Schnitzler’s droll, engrossing short novel of artists in 1890s Vienna tempers its satire with keen insight….Readers are fortunate to have this late publication.” —Publishers Weekly

“[An] elegant comedy edged with tragedy.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Schnitzler is worth revisiting because of his wit, his insight into men and women, and his grasp of the way sex, love, and hate intersect.” —Slate

“As a writer, Schnitzler has two somewhat contradictory principal gifts: he is very methodical, and he loves to surprise…couched in terse, powerful sentences.” —Michael Hofmann, The New York Times

“[Schnitzler] had an uncanny ear for dialogue, a gratifying wit, a talent for spinning out tales of adultery in almost infinite variations, a keen psychological eye even if it did not match that of Freud.” —Peter Gay, The New York Times
