Remarkable Roth

Book of Easter is the truly genius The Radetzky March by Joseph Roth. A long, poetic and moving story set in Austria before WW1, examining change, death, loyalty and the passing of empires and cultures. An amazing book with some of the most beautiful writing I have encountered for many years. Magical and sad. Roth himself was an Austrian jew and his novels are based on his own life.
