Summary

Twenty-two classic short stories of love and death, betrayal and hope—from a master storyteller hailed as “the Updike of his time” (New York Observer)
 
In this magnificent collection of Stefan Zweig’s short stories, the very best and worst of human nature is captured with sharp observation, understanding, and vivid empathy.
