A small German town edges into fascism in a novel by the bestselling author of Alone in Berlin: “So terribly genuine, it is frightening.”—Kurt Tucholsky It is the summer of 1929, and in Altholm, Germany, a storm is brewing—a local political resistance that could be valuable to Max Tredup. Max, a shabby, unprincipled reporter working for the Chronicle, Altholm’s failing newspaper, is leading a precarious and hungry existence when he takes some potentially damning photographs. Sold to the right bidder, he could make a fortune. While he contemplates his next move, the town is buzzing. Farmers are plotting their revenge against greedy officials, a mysterious traveling salesman is stirring up trouble, and the Nazi party grows stronger as the Communists fight them in the street. And all the while, Altholm’s oppressive mayor, who’s doing everything in his power to seek the easy life, is involved in a conspiracy of schemes of his own. With the town rapidly slipping into chaos, tensions mount between workers and bosses, town and country, and left and right. As alliances are broken, bribes are taken, and plots are hatched, a shocking act of violence is all it takes to push Altholm over the edge. From the brilliant mind of one of Germany’s most celebrated writers, A Small Circus “gives us front-row seats to Germany's decade-long quest for a sacrificial scapegoat that culminated in the Nazi takeover” (The Independent).

She was born to be Queen of Scotland, she was briefly the Queen of France and she had a claim to being Queen of England, which resulted in her having her head chopped off. They chopped off her head after she was found guilty of conspiring to have Queen Elizabeth (1533-1603) assassinated so that she could take power. Had she not been executed, she would eventually have become Queen of England when Elizabeth died. That was only one of the many controversies in which she was involved. Her first husband, who became the King of France, making her the Queen, died shortly thereafter and her second husband was found murdered, apparently strangled. Mary Queen of Scots (1542-1587) was believed to have been complicit in that murder. This widely acclaimed biography by Stefan Zweig is regarded as the best of the many biographies of this famous woman. The great thing about the author, Stefan Zweig, is that his biographies are smooth and easy to read. By contrast, there is a weighty tome with exactly the same title but 880 pages long. Here in 386 easy to read pages you can learn everything about Mary Queen of Scots that you will probably ever want to know.

Wes Anderson on Stefan Zweig: "I had never heard of Zweig...when I just more or less by chance bought a copy of Beware of Pity. I loved this first book. I also read the The Post-Office Girl. The Grand Budapest Hotel has elements that were sort of stolen from both these books. Two characters in our story are vaguely meant to represent Zweig himself — our “Author” character, played by Tom Wilkinson, and the theoretically fictionalised version of himself, played by Jude Law. But, in fact, M. Gustave, the main character who is played by Ralph Fiennes, is modelled significantly on Zweig as well." 2009 PEN Translation Prize Finalist The logic of capitalism, boom and bust, is unremitting and unforgiving. But what happens to human feeling in a completely commodified world? In The Post-Office Girl, Stefan Zweig, a deep analyst of the human passions, lays bare the private life of capitalism.Christine toils in a provincial post office in post–World War I Austria, a country gripped by unemployment. Out of the blue, a telegram arrives from Christine’s rich American aunt inviting her to a resort in the Swiss Alps. Christine is immediately swept up into a world of inconceivable wealth and unleashed desire. She feels herself utterly transformed: nothing is impossible. But then, abruptly, her aunt cuts her loose. Christine returns to the post office, where yes, nothing will ever be the same. Christine meets Ferdinand, a bitter war veteran and disappointed architect, who works construction jobs when he can get them. They are drawn to each other, even as they are crushed by a sense of deprivation, of anger and shame. Work, politics, love, sex: everything is impossible for them. Life is meaningless, unless, through one desperate and decisive act, they can secretly remake their world from within. Cinderella meets Bonnie and Clyde in Zweig’s haunting and hard-as-nails novel, completed during the 1930s, as he was driven by the Nazis into exile, but left unpublished at the time of his death. The Post-Office Girl, available here for the first time in English, transforms our image of a modern master’s achievement.

A truly funny and stunningly well-told tale of murder in a small Irish village in Donegal, Bogmail is a classic of modern Irish literature. Set in a remote village, the action begins with a murder when Roarty, a publican and former priest, kills his bartender then buries his body in a bog. It's not long before Roarty starts getting blackmail letters, and matters quickly spiral out of his control. Twisty, turny and enlivened with colour that echoes the landscape and surroundings, Bogmail was Patrick McGinley's first novel, yet it remains just as fresh today as the day it first appeared.

A deep study of the uneasy heart by one of the masters of the psychological novel, Journey into the Past, published here for the first time in America, is a novella that was found among Zweig’s papers after his death. Investigating the strange ways in which love, in spite of everything—time, war, betrayal—can last, Zweig tells the story of Ludwig, an ambitious young man from a modest background who falls in love with the wife of his rich employer. His love is returned, and the couple vow to live together, but then Ludwig is dispatched on business to Mexico, and while he is there the First World War breaks out. With travel and even communication across the Atlantic shut down, Ludwig makes a new life in the New World. Years later, however, he returns to Germany to find his beloved a widow and their mutual attraction as strong as ever. But is it possible for love to survive precisely as the impossible?
