Zweig’s Star Rises

02 Dec 2014

'Zweig, prolific storyteller and embodiment of a vanished Mitteleuropa, seems to be back, and in a big way' The New York Times

2014 has been a great year for Stefan Zweig, as his revival continues, largely thanks to the box-office success of Wes Anderson’s Zweig-inspired hit The Grand Budapest Hotel.

“My brother Juan was murdered in Urabá.

“Despite the immense pain it caused me, I immediately realised that something had happened which had the dimensions of a tragedy – I mean the aesthetic dimensions. Part of me felt a pain which was at times unbearable, while the other part was coldly considering the facts, like someone looking at a fallen tree who assesses the size of the canoe he can extract from it”

Tomás González, writer of In the Beginning Was the Sea, comes to London to talk at the London Review Bookshop

‘Extremely potent: sly, voyeuristic, ominously poetic… A cautionary tale about choosing to defy the laws of nature and man, and ultimately discovering that idealism can’t replace them’ – Times Literary Supplement
