The Impossible Exile PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Impossible Exile free pdf By the 1930s, Stefan Zweig had become the most widely translated living author in the world. His novels, short stories and biographies were so compelling that they became instant bestsellers. Zweig was also an intellectual and a lover of all the arts, high and low. This tells the tragic story of Zweig's extraordinary rise and fall while it also depicts, with great acumen, the gulf between the world of ideas in Europe and in America. It also reveals how Zweig embodied, through his work, thoughts and behaviour, the end of an era of Europe as the Western Ideal.
