Description:
A young student finds himself drawn ever closer to his passionate and enigmatic English teacher In the autumn of his days, a privy councillor contemplates his past, looking back at the key moments in his life. He remembers sharing a lodging with a professor and his wife and a close friendship is formed. The professor, however harbours a dark secret which changes both men forever. 'The rediscovery of this extraordinary writer could well be on a par with last year's refinding of the long-lost Stoner, by John Williams, and which similarly could pluck his name out of a dusty obscurity.' Simon Winchester, Telegraph Confusion is one of his finest and most exemplary works ...a marvellously poised account of misunderstood motives, thwarted love, and sublimated desires ...a perfect reminder of, or introduction to, Zweig's economy and subtlety as a writer. --ROBERT MACFARLANE Times Literary Supplement Passion and dedication ...Outside the works of Plato, I don't think I have ever read a better or more honest account of what ill always remain at the heart of teaching.
--GABRIEL JOSIPOVICI, The Jewish Chronicle Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) was born in Vienna, into a wealthy Austrian-Jewish family.
