"I had never heard of Zweig until six or seven years ago, as all the books began to come back into print, and I more or less by chance bought a copy of Beware of Pity. I immediately loved this book, his one, big, great novel — and suddenly there were dozens more in front of me waiting to read."
(Wes Anderson)

One of Stefan Zweig's best-loved stories in full—a passionate tale of gambling, love and death, played out against the stylish backdrop of the French Riviera in the 1920s.
