I loved these travel essays. Beautifully written & translated. Zweig was an open-minded, curious traveller. He describes people & landscapes with compassion - you sense his love for Seville, & the understated beauty of Hyde Park. His observations of the first package tours are fascinating (& still relevant today) and the history of places such as Avignon is interesting & told simply with his light touch.

TobeyTheScavengerMonk Never read any Zweig, but I‘ve been interested since learning that his work was the primary inspiration behind Wes Anderson‘s film The Grand Budapest Hotel. 12mo

Wonderful snapshot of an era and some of its cultural icons including Stefan Zweig & Joseph Roth. I loved the clean writing and unsentimental tone. He imagines some of their thoughts or speech but it never feels speculative - it‘s drawn from letters & diaries. By curating their stories to give us the interesting parts & where they intersect, he gives us a book that feels lively & fresh. I loved the insights into Zweig (a favourite author).
