The Last Days by Laurent Seksik

days

This novel spins fact and fiction to recount the last days of author Stefan Zweig and his wife Lotte before they commit suicide while in exile from the Nazis. I confess that I had forgotten about reading this book until my husband reminded me. My explanation is that I read it during a bad batch of insomnia, which was probably a bad idea. The book is very dark (understandably) and somewhat fractured, with some beautiful writing.
