About this book
In the only novel Zweig published during his lifetime, an Austro-Hungarian cavalry officer wracked with guilt and pity becomes implicated in a well-meaning but tragically wrongheaded plot to restore the daughter of a wealthy landowner to health. This psychological thriller set on board a ship traveling from New York to Buenos Aires was the last work Zweig wrote before he committed suicide. A young man is packed off by his father to a university in a sleepy provincial town where a brilliant lecture awakens in him a wild passion for learning—and for the professor who gave the talk. Found among Zweig’s papers after his death, this psychological novel investigates the stage ways in which love can last, in spite of everything. Zweig’s posthumously discovered novel is about the rise and fall of a provincial Austrian girl invited to the Swiss Alps by her wealthy American aunt.
