About the Author
The greatest novelist of the netherworld darkness stretching on beyond death, Alexander Lernet-Holenia (1895-1977) was born into the aristocracy of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. His novels have been acclaimed for their "dauntless panache: fast-moving, cleverly convoluted, terrific" (Eileen Battersby, Irish Times).
The prominent 20th-c. American translators Richard & Clara Winston, born in New York and educated at Brooklyn College, won several awards (the American Book Award and the PEN Translation Prize) for their translations of Thomas Mann, Franz Kafka, Hannah Arendt, Albert Speer, and Hermann Hesse.
