IMG_8850_resizedTo round off my two recent postings about Stefan Zweig, here are two pieces about the Austrian author who died 1942 in exile in Brazil.

The first article is an insightful portrait originally published in The New Yorker, revealing the man behind the public persona Zweig created for himself.

The second text is a conversation  between Wes Anderson, who has credited Zweig as the inspiration for his movie The Grand Budapest Hotel, and George Prochnik, author of  the biography The Impossible Exile: Stefan Zweig at the End of the World.
