The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
This week’s story is from The Governess and Other Stories by Stefan Zweig, published by Pushkin Press. An eclectic collection of four brilliant stories, including a Renaissance tragedy and an English whodunit. These four stories illustrate the wide range of Zweig’s subject matter dating from quite early in his career as a writer of fiction (“The Governess,” rooted in a world of strict Edwardian morality), to late (“Did He Do It?,” almost an English detective story set near Bath, where Zweig lived in exile).
“Stefan Zweig’s time of oblivion is over for good. . . . It’s good to have him back.”—Salman Rushdie, New York Times
