Product Description

Introduction by Nadine Gordimer>/p>

The novels of Joseph Roth now available with a new look.

"The totality of Joseph Roth's work is no less than a tragedie humaine achieved in the techniques of modern fiction." Nadine Gordimer

The Radetzky March, Joseph Roth's classic saga of the privileged von Trotta family, encompasses the entire social fabric of the Austro-Hungarian Empire just before World War I. The author's greatest achievement, The Radetzky March is an unparalleled portrait of a civilization in decline, and as such is a universal story for our times.

"One of the most readable, poignant, and superb novels in twentieth century German: it stands with the best of Thomas Mann, Alfred D blin, and Robert Musil." Harold Bloom

Joseph Roth was born in 1894, in a small Galician town on the eastern borders if the Hapsburg Empire. After serving in the Austro-Hungarian army from 1916 to 1918, he worked as a journalist in Vienna and in Berlin. He died in Paris in 1939, leaving behind him thirteen novels as well as many stories and essays.
