Confusion by Stefan Zweig


“One of his finest and most exemplary works.” – Robert Macfarlane, TLS

When Roland, a young student newly arrived at university, meets an inspirational professor, he finds himself swept into his world of literature and learning. But as he is drawn closer to this remarkable man, he senses his mentor pulling away from him – sometimes even seeming to hate him… Roland is baffled, but when he is finally made to see the truth it will change him forever.

AmokAmok by Stefan Zweig

“I can’t think of a writer who is more successful at depicting amour fou…nowhere more grippingly than in Amok.” – Julie Kavanagh, Economist Intelligent Life

On a sweltering ocean-liner travelling from India to Europe a passenger tells his story – the tale of a doctor in the Dutch East Indies torn between his duty and the pull of his emotions; a tale of power and maddening desire, of pride, shame and a headlong flight into folly.
