About this product
- DescriptionBorn in Vienna in 1881, Stefan Zweig was one of the most respected authors of his time. This book provides an analysis of the Zweigs' time together and presents personal letters, written by the couple in Argentina and Brazil, along with editorial commentary.
- Author BiographyStefan Zweig, novelist, essayist, historian, poet, and noted pacifist, was born in Vienna in 1881 into a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family. In the 1920s and 30s Zweig enjoyed great literary fame and was one of the most translated authors in the world. With the rise of Nazism in Germany, Zweig moved to England where, in 1939, he became a British subject. Following a lecture tour of South America and a period in New York, he moved to Brazil where in 1942, in despair at the future of Europe, he and his wife committed suicide. Lotte Zweig (nee Altmann) was born in 1908 into a middle-class family of merchants in the Prussian city of Kattowitz. Soon after Hitler gained power in Germany, she moved to London. In 1934 Lotte was employed by Stefan Zweig as a multilingual secretary and research assistant. They married in 1939 and the following year left their home in Bath for the Americas. Darien J.
