Set in Austria between the two world wars, this novel lavishes its sensuous prose on both the elegant trappings of the wealthy and also the squalor and shame of poverty – a compassionate retelling of the Cinderella story.  The human cost of the boom and bust of capitalism.  Written by a master of the short story and novella, Stefan Zweig.
