Books Unbound – “The Burning Secret” by Stefan Zweig, Part 2

Stefan Zweig was an Austrian Jew whose books were among the first burned by the Nazis in 1933. He was one of the most beloved writers of the 1920s and 30s, but he committed suicide in Brazil in 1942, despairing that the Old Europe he loved was lost. His novella “The Burning Secret” shows the psychoanalytic influence of his friend Sigmund Freud. Zweig has enjoyed a recent renaissance in the English-speaking world, and was the inspiration for filmmaker Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.
