In a 1920s Austrian sanatorium, a lonely 12-year-old boy is befriended and becomes infatuated by a suave and mysterious baron, who heartlessly brushes him aside to turn his seductive attentions to the boy's mother. Stefan Zweig provides the reader, in this newly available translation, with a study of childhood on the brink of adolescence and a boy's uncontrollable jealousy and feelings of betrayal.
