The Invisible Collection

By Stefan Zweig
Translated by Anthea Bell

“Zweig, prolific storyteller and embodiment of a vanished Mitteleuropa, seems to be back, and in a big way.”—New York Times

“One of the masters of the short story.”—Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

“Zweig belongs with those masters of the novella-Maupassant, Turgenev, Chekhov."—Paul Bailey

"This is the story of about the strangest thing that I've ever encountered, old art dealer that I am."

It is perhaps the finest art collection of its kind, acquired through a lifetime of sacrifice—but when a dealer comes to see it, he finds something quite unexpected, and is drawn into a peculiar deception of the collector himself...

Stefan Zweig was a wildly popular writer of compelling short fiction: in this collection there are peaks of extraordinary emotion, stories of all that is human crushed by the movements of history, of letters that fill a young heart or drive a person towards death, of obsession and desire. They will stay with the reader forever.
