Journey Into The Past
By Stefan Zweig
A beautiful new edition of this heart-rending study of the psychology of love
Exiled for nine years by the First World War, Ludwig has finally returned home to meet the woman he so passionately loved, and who promised to wait for him. But circumstances have changed... Confronted with an uncertain future, and still haunted by the past, they discover whether their love has survived hardships, betrayals, and the lapse of time. Zweig's long-lost final novella—posthumously discovered in manuscript form—is a poignant examination of the angst of nostalgia and the fragility of love.
