N touch with someone read a girl he d been so close to for so ong But whatever the reason it hurt in a really weird wayReading Zweig s The Invisible Collection made me think of Phil Those characters hurt that way too because their feelings are strong but unresolved and they are confused and powerless to make it right Very often are confused and powerless to make it right Very often short stories I get frustrated with the ack of solid resolution the ack of closure But the way Zweig writes make the uncertainty a strength sometimes It S Better Not s better not know exactly how things endZweig also had a gift for taking a reader through a very wide range of emotion in relatively few pages The title story felt ike being put through a wrench and made me wonder if I shouldn t get some sort of notarized document about what should be done with my precious Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential library should I ever be incapacitated The Miracles of Life exhausted me andeft me biting my ips and blinking away tears on my metro seat which I didn t expect because the subject matter is not usually one that gets my feels going faith and motherhood are you kidding me Zweig A Story Told in Twilight bottles the dizzying intensity of first kisses almost too perfectly and depending on your mood it l make you smile or cringe And the famous novella Amok is a strange and almost frightening story of secrets battles of will regrets and shame that Humanism left me deeply puzzled what if these people had simply said what they meant not played these bizarre high stake social gamesThe theme of the collection is supposed to be desire and obsession but those words can definitely mean than the usual significance we ascribe them The characters in these pages want things that are much complex thanove and sex and the nature of their obsessions can be greedy but are really about attachment on a spiritual evel It is not the power itself that the exiled Madame de Prie misses so much as what she was in the eyes of others which is a much dangerous thing than simple authority it s her entire identity and sense of self Bob s stupid mistake completely altered his ife and made me wonder how often such a simple blunder has derailed a destiny The Commercial Counsellor is so attached to the idea of his daughter as his child that he utterly forgets that she is not just a daughter but also a woman There is desire and obsession in these pages absolutely but there is also a Placing Memory lot to chew on about how we perceive each other and ourselves and how we want to be perceivedI gave the book 4 stars because a couple of weaker stories bring the collection down a very small notch but Zweig s writing is fast becoming some of my favorite despite the strange things it brings upI stuck Phil s picture in Zweig s book when I was done reading it That s where it belongs with that kind of story Maybe one day Il figure out why my good friend decided he couldn t be around any and I l move the picture to a different book The Invisible Collection An episode from the time of German inflation Twilight The Miracles of Life A Story Told in Twilight Wondrak unfinished Downfall of the Heart Leporella Did He Do It Amok The Star Above the Forest Date of First Publication in German The waning days of the Weimar RepublicThose at the apogee of the inflation rocket are wallowing in oodles of cash than enough to build valuable art collections while those unfortunate souls but one degree below are struggling to put a simple meal on the table before the next impending devaluationA prestigious Berlin art dealer has seen his inventory gobbled up by the nouveau riche and his bank balance decimated to the bone by insatiable inflation He seeks out a provincial collector who has patronized the family gallery for generations A man he has never met face to faceWhen he knocks on the village door the dealer meets a blind man who has no idea that his impressive portfolios are filled with nothing but copies of the missing masterpieces and blank sheets of paper since his desperate wife and daughter have sold the originals to feed the familyPage by memorized page that he can no onger see the excited blind man confidently gives the dealer a minutely detailed tour of his ife s passion his accomplishment his pride and joy that was as transitory as ife itselfThis is the genius of Stefan Zweig at play A writer whose short stories have impact than novels.
