'I alone know that I am only just beginning to live.' He is distinguished, rich, a member of fashionable society-utterlybored. But, over the course of one fantastic night, a young Baron becomes a thief, unashamed, and awakes to life for the first time. This collection is full of tales of infinite passions, of intense encounters that transform lives, a knock on a door that forces a whole community to take flight, a doomed attempt to save a soul poisoned by addiction, a love soured into awful cruelty, of longing and liberation. They are the gripping work of a master storyteller, unmatched and completely unforgettable.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the joys of recent years is the translation into English of Stefan Zweig's stories. They have an astringency of outlook and a mastery of scale that I find enormously enjoyable. -- Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare with Amber Eyes Zweig belongs with those masters of the novella-Maupassant, Turgenev, Chekhov. -- Paul Bailey One of the masters of the short story -- Nicholas Lezard Guardian The stories are as page-turning as they are subtle... Compelling Guardian Stefan Zweig... was a talented writer and ultimately another tragic victim of wartime despair. This rich collection... confirms how good he could be -- Eileen Battersby Irish Times The rediscovery of this extraordinary writer could well be on a par with last year's refinding of the long-lost Stoner, by John Williams -- Simon Winchester Telegraph
