Description

In 1913 a young second lieutenant discovers the terrible danger of pity. He had no idea the girl was lame when he asked her to dance – his compensatory afternoon calls relieve his guilt but give her a dangerous glimmer of hope. Stefan Zweig’s only novel is a devastating depiction of the torment of the betrayal of both honour and love, realised against the background of the disintegration of the Austro- -Hungarian Empire.
