Product Details


‘I can’t think of a writer who is more successful at depicting amour fou – what one critic describes as “sex and madness breaking through the lacquered screen of upper-bourgeois society”- nowhere more grippingly than in Amok in which a doctor, a Conradesque loner, is tipped into “a sort of human rabies” by an unattainable colonial wife.’ – Julie Kavanagh, Economist Intelligent Life

‘To read Zweig is to be in the presence of a properly mature writer, for all that his characters are often in the grip of highly inappropriate desires. (…) These are unforgettable stories, beautifully translated. Anthea Bell is a first-rate translator; she brings out the humour as well as the anguish that make Zweig’s work so sympathetically acute.’ – Nicholas Lezard, Guardian
