“The Collected Stories of Stefan Zweig,” Pushkin Press, 2013

Posted by dumpendebat

For those of you who are wondering whether you want the new Collected Stories of Stefan Zweig, just published by Pushkin Press: well, of course you do. Twenty-two stories by Stefan Zweig, translated by Anthea Bell, in a nice hardcover edition — the decision to buy it is a classic no-brainer.

All the same, I’ve been mildly annoyed that I couldn’t find a table of contents anywhere. So, here’s a list of the stories that are in the book, along with their original German titles and first date of publication:
