Confusion

«Confusion is one of his finest and most exemplary works... a marvellously poised account of misunderstood motives, thwarted love, and sublimated desires... a perfect reminder of, or introduction to, Zweig's economy and subtlety as a writer»

Robert MacFarlane, Times Literary Supplement

Om forfatteren

Stefan Zweig was born in 1881 in Vienna, into a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family. He studied in Berlin and Vienna and was first known as a poet and translator, then as a biographer. Between the wars, Zweig was an international bestseller with a string of hugely popular novellas including Letter from an Unknown Woman, Amok and Fear. In 1934, with the rise of Nazism, he left Austria, and lived in London, Bath and New York-a period during which he produced his most celebrated works: his only novel, Beware of Pity, and his memoir, The World of Yesterday. He eventually settled in Brazil, where in 1942 he and his wife were found dead in an apparent double suicide. Much of his work is available from Pushkin Press.
