Información de este libro electrónico

"Se encontraba en esa edad decisiva en la que una mujer empieza a lamentar el hecho de haberse mantenido fiel a un marido al que al fin y al cabo nunca ha querido, y en la que el purpúreo crepúsculo de su belleza le concede una última y apremiante elección entre lo maternal y lo femenino. La vida, a la que hace tiempo parece que se le han dado ya todas las respuestas, se convierte una vez más en pregunta, por última vez tiembla la mágica aguja del deseo, oscilando entre la esperanza de una experiencia erótica y la resignación definitiva. Una mujer tiene entonces que decidir entre vivir su propio destino o el de sus hijos, entre comportarse como una mujer o como una madre. Y el barón, perspicaz en esas cuestiones, creyó notar en ella aquella peligrosa vacilación entre la pasión de vivir y el sacrificio".
"Pequeña joya que reúne dentro de ella todo lo mejor del autor y que desde el principio logra atraparnos, seducirnos."
Lola Santiago, ABC
"Esta novela corta destaca por dos motivos que dejarán huella en el lector: los sentimientos de indefensión del hijo de la protagonista y sobre todo, la insuperable descripción de la figura del seductor."
J.M. Cabrales Arteaga, El Diario Montañés
"La historia de una conquista amorosa se convierte en la crónica del paso de la infancia a la adolescencia, casi siempre doloroso."

    Five pretty powerful longish short stories.The title story tells of an experienced seducer on a boring holiday; he entertains himself by befriending a lonely twelve-year old boy, with the aim of getting to the mother through the son. As the child realises the man's overtures of friendship were nothing but a ploy, he sets out to ruin the developing relationship, which he barely understands...The other four stories all have a theme of madness or obsession:-The Royal Game tells of a chess match during a cruise. The main protagonist is a stolid world champion...but his rival developed a fixation with the intricacies of the game while in lengthy solitary confinement.-Amok also takes place on a ship, where the narrator encounters a doctor returning home from the colonies, after a tragedy This was for me the weakest of the collection, not ringing true at all.-Fear was a BRILLIANT evocation of a well to do wife facing blackmail and possible exposure from a meaningless liaison. The constant terror, temptation to confess...was wonderfully conjured up.-Letter from an Unknown Woman, while a tearjerker was, again, very OTT. A woman writes to an author- we must assume from the letter that she's already dead- and recalls their (brief) shared history. She was the young daughter of neighbours, adoring him from afar; later they had a brief liaison, meaning everything to her, while he never gave her another thought. The sadness of someone's entire life given up to a pretty worthless human being, while he has no recollection of her...Pretty gripping read.

    Well, I enjoyed this more than 'Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Woman'. It was as corny as hell but insightful about the human condition nonetheless. The central conceit - a Lothario attempting to seduce a woman through befriending her son and how this backfires on him - is an entertaining one. It was light enough to fit into my work bag and not to tax me on my morning commute.

    This is one of the best novella's I've ever read. A rather simple story of a visitor to a spa who finds himself attracted to a lady visitor and, to get her attention, befriends her young son. Soon after that, the story switches focus to the son, who initially is proud to have such an old friend, then feels betrayed and finally -- in a brilliant ending -- feels he has discovered the Adult's Secret.I love Zweig's clear prose and it's a shame he isn't more widely read (or more widely translated) as he used to be.

    Really enjoyed this short one! Zweig was a fantastic writer, somehow in this story was able to make you feel sympathy for all three of the main characters, despite their different personalities and goals; an bon vivant serial seducer, a woman trapped in an unhappy and unfaithful marriage, and a pretty self absorbed immature pre teen.

    A beautifully written novella about loss of innocence and the "burning secrets" of life and love. This is my first Stefan Zweig read and I am really impressed. Reading this novella started off a year long group read of Zweig works, and I eagerly anticipate the next books I will be reading. This book has everything I look for; great characters, a compelling plot, and above all, absolutely beautiful writing!
