"What did Zweig have that brought him the fanatical devotion of millions of readers, the admiration of Herman Hesse, the invitation to give the eulogy at the funeral of Sigmund Freud? To learn that, we would have to have a biography that illuminated all aspects of his work, that read all of his books, and that challenged, rather than accepted, the apparent modesty of his statements about his life and work." - Benjamin Moser, Bookforum "Touching and delightful. THose adjectives are not meant as faint praise. ZWeig may be especially appealing now because rather than being a progenitor of big ideas, he was a serious entertainer, and an ardent and careful observer of habits, foibles, passions and mistakes." - A.O. SCott, The New York Times "Zweig's readability made him one of the most popular writers of the early twentieth century all over the world, with translations into thirty languages. HIs lives of Mary Stuart and Marie Antoinette were international bestsellers." - Julie Kavanagh, The Economist Intelligent Life "Zweig's accumulated historical and cultural studies, whether in essay or monograph form, remain a body of achievement almost too impressive to take in... FUll-sized books on Marie-Antoinette, Mary Stuart, and Magellan were international best sellers." - Clive James, Cultural Amnesia "Stefan Zweig cherished the everyday imperfections and frustrated aspirations of the men and women he analysed with such affection and understanding." - Paul Bailey, Times Literary Supplement "To read Zweig is to be in the presence of a properly mature writer, for all that his characters are often in the grip of highly inappropriate desires." - Guardian "Zweig is the most adult of writers; civilised, urbane, but never jaded or cynical; a realist who none the less believed in the possibility - the necessity - of empathy." - Independent "Zweig's genius as a storyteller encompasses the brainy as well as those of average intelligence, the very rich and the desperately poor. HE deserves to be famous again, and for good'." - Times Literary Supplement
