This novella is one of Stefan Zweig's most powerful studies of a woman's mind and emotions.

</b A bourgeois housewife embarks on a casual affair with a younger man. But when an anonymous blackmailer threatens to denounce her to her husband, her life is turned into a nightmare of apprehension, and what she thought a harmless dalliance threatens to destroy her completely.

About the Author

Stefan Zweig was born in 1881 in Vienna, a member of a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family. He studied in Berlin and Vienna and was first known as a translator and later as a biographer. Zweig travelled widely, living in Salzburg between the wars, and enjoying literary fame. His stories and novellas were collected in 1934. In the same year, with the rise of Nazism, he briefly moved to London, taking British citizenship. After a short period in New York, he settled in Brazil where in 1942 he and his wife were found dead in bed in an apparent double suicide.

Industry Reviews

Charts every fluctuation of its heroine's inner turmoil and ends with an ingenious twist -- Julie Kavanagh The Economist Intelligent Life Brilliant, unusual and haunting enough to ensure that Stefan Zweig's time of oblivion is over for good. Zweig developed a remarkable literary and psychological method... brought to something like perfection. The story that most clearly exemplifies Zweig's method is Fear... it's good to have him back -- Salman Rushdie The New York Times Zweig belongs with those masters of the novella - Maupassant, Turgenev, Chekhov - of whom he was in awe. He was formidably well read, but in his fiction he is as much at ease with the unlettered as the learned... 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 [During his lifetime] arguably the most widely read and translated serious author in the world -- John Fowles
