No one likes rejection. But what's even worse is being repudiated and humiliated by the one who supposedly loves you. Have you never experienced that? Read "Beware of Pity" by Stefan Zweig.
The only novel Stefan Zweig published during his life, "Beware of Pity" is a melancholy tale of misdirected admiration and pity.
Revealing the suffering of the "bourgeois outsider," the Swiss poet and novelist is considered one of the 19th century's great European literati whose works are highly relevant today.
Along with the French comic series, Bell was the award-winning translator behind the English version of German literature classics, including works by Kafka, W.G. Sebald, Stefan Zweig and Siegfried Lenz.
A tragic love story poetically told, Lenz's tale of an affair between an English teacher and her 18-year-old student captures life in a small seaside village and reflects Germany's own post-war growing pains.
