A casual introduction, a challenge to a simple game of chess, a lovers' reunion, a meaningless infidelity: from such small seeds Zweig brings forth five startlingly tense tales-meditations on the fragility of love, the limits of obsession, the combustibility of secrets and betrayal. To read anything by Zweig is to risk addiction; in this collection the power of his writing-which, with its unabashed intensity and narrative drive, made him one of the bestselling and most acclaimed authors in the world-is clear and irresistible. Each of these stories is a bolt of experience, unforgettable and unique.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A rediscovery of Zweig through this book gives an enlightening perspective on the past century and how we got where we are today." - BlogCritics.org

Burning Secret

"Breathtaking ... the final sentence is unlike anything I have ever read before." - Guardian

A Chess Story
'Perhaps the best chess story ever written, perhaps the best about any game' - Economist

Fear
"Brilliant, unusual and haunting ... Stefan Zweig's time of oblivion is over for good." - Salman Rushdie, The New York Times

Confusion
"A marvellously poised account of misunderstood motives, thwarted love, and sublimated desires" - TLS
