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.
