Full description for Beware of Pity
"Beware of Pity is the most exciting book I have ever read...a feverish, fascinating novel" Anthony Beevor, Sunday Telegraph An extract of this book was chosen by Kazuo Ishiguro and included in the 2012 World Book Night edition of Remains of the Day An almost unbearably tense and powerful tale of unrequited love and the danger of pity. In 1913 a young second lieutenant discovers the terrible danger of pity. He had no idea the girl was lame when he asked her to dance - his compensatory afternoon calls relieve his guilt but give her a dangerous glimmer of hope. Stefan Zweig's only novel is a devastating depiction of the torment of the betrayal of both honour and love, realised against the background of the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Published alongside a new edition of Journey into the Past and a new translation of Letter from an Unknown Woman and other stories.
