Stefan Zweig



Today I bought the newspaper from Al Rasheed Street. They don't sell newspapers in some areas in Baghdad, like in the area where I live and the area where I work. So I felt happy that I can buy a newspaper. They even gave me a free edition of Stefan Zweig novel "Chess". I didn't know about Zweig. I only heard his name and I cannot remember anything about that. Today I knew how wonderful are (is) his writings. He was talking about 2 types of intelligence in that novel. It was great.

You might like this (from my blog) about Stefan Zweig and a short novella that I read recently by him called Twenty Four hours in the life of a Woman:

Beware of Pity is another fabulous story, and I think you would really enjoy it if you were able to get your hands on a copy. He is brilliant at dissecting emotions.
