In this biography, Oliver Matuschek meticulously examines the complex life of the Austrian writer, combing through previously inaccessible or unknown letters and documents to trace Zweig’s journey from celebrated author to desperate man and suicidal man who would ultimately take his life in a small Brazilian town.Antes de escoger El mundo de ayer como el título de su autobiografía, Stefan Zweig había considerado usar “Mis tres vidas”. Hubiese sido un título apropiado ya que, en efecto, su vida constaba de tres grandes etapas: sus años de aprendizaje en Viena finisecular y los posteriores de ascenso en el escalafón literario- los dos decenios de trabajo constante, éxito popular y brillo mundano que vivió con su primera esposa en Salzburgo- y su exilio de Austria. En esta biografía, Oliver Matuschek meticulosamente investiga la compleja vida del escritor austríaco, basándose en cartas y documentos hasta ahora inaccesibles o desconocidos para trazar el viaje de Zweig desde autor célebre hasta un hombre desesperado y suicida que terminaría tomándose la vida en un pequeño pueblo brasileño.
