Item description for Twilight & Moonbeam Alley by Stefan Zweig & Anthea Bell...

Following the success of other Stefan Zweig stories, Pushkin publishes two more in their Classics series. In "Twilight," a fashionable lady is banished from Versailles by the king. She tries to survive living alone in the country, but although she entertains lovers and friends, she comes to find existence intolerable. In "Moonbeam Alley," a traveler delayed in a French port explores the sailors' quarter. Enticed by a voice singing a Weber aria to a bar near the harbor, he learns the story of those who run it and frequent it: a tale of unrequited passion, a sham marriage, and violence.

Stefan Zweig, novelist, biographer, poet, and translator, was born in 1881 in Vienna and died in Brazil in 1942.

More About Stefan Zweig & Anthea Bell


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! 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.
Translated from the German by Will Stone."

Reviews - What do customers think about Twilight & Moonbeam Alley?

More Unforgettable Storytelling!  Jun 20, 2008
Pushkin Press is to be thanked for bringing the work of Stefan Zweig back into circulation in English. In a series of wonderful little books, they've restored Zweig's expert storytelling to those of us unable (or unwilling) to read him in the original German. The two included here indicate Zweig's grasp of history as well as his psychological insights into human character. "Twilight" explores the gradual mental and emotional collapse of a French aristocrat exiled from court to the countryside of Normandy. When she realizes that she has been forgotten by her friends at court, she conceives a plan to stage a spectacular suicide. (As someone who wrote a famed biography of Marie Antoinette, Zweig understood the French courts well.) The lesser "Moonbeam Alley" is the first-person narrative of a German man drawn into a sleazy little nightclub in a French port, where his life becomes tangled with the lives of the locals. I anxiously await the next installment of Pushkin's Zweig series!
