One of the most popular, as well as one of the most critically admired international authors of his time, Stefan Zweig was master of the evocative short story. In A Game of Chess – his dazzling final novella – a seemingly casual gaming challenge aboard a trans-Atlantic liner  becomes a tense psychological battle of wits. This collection places it in the company of three other varied, thought-provoking and elegantly entertaining tales.
