Shooting Stars: Ten Historical Miniatures is history imbued with all the pace and passion of a Zweig novella—a selection of ten key episodes from the past, brought breathlessly to life as only the great Austrian author knew how. In German, Shooting Stars is one of Stefan Zweig's most popular works, and has sold over two million copies. In the UK, however, it's been out of print for seventy years, so we're particularly excited to be publishing this brilliant new translation by the incomparable Anthea Bell, in a clothbound hardback edition designed by Nathan Burton. It's published on 12th November, but if you can't wait until then you can read an extract here.
