Journey Into the Past

by Stefan Zweig


After nine years of separation from his native country because of the First World War, Louis finally sets foot in Austria and meets the woman he had been in love with and who had promised to wait for him. Previously divided by class and wealth, both are now married and much changed by their recent experiences, and they must find out whether their love could survive the hardships, betrayals and the lapse of time. A poignant examination of the angst of nostalgia and the fragility of love, Zweig's long-lost final novella - recently rediscovered in manuscript form - simultaneously portrays the loss of innocence of a country about to succumb to the evils of fascism.
