About the Author

Joseph Roth was born in 1894 in a small Galician town on the eastern borders of the Hapsburg Empire. After serving in the Austro-Hungarian army from 1916 to 1918, he worked as a journalist in Vienna and in Berlin. He died in Paris in 1939, leaving behind thirteen novels as well as many stories and essays.
Richard Panchyk is the author of 15 books, including German New York City. He has studied 19th-century immigration to New York City for the past 20 years. Using photographs culled from his extensive collection of images and from the Library of Congress, he offers a closer look at the many facets of Catholic life in New York City. Edward Cardinal Egan, former archbishop of New York, provides the foreword.

Reviews

There is a poem on every page of Joseph Roth.--Joseph Brodsky
This is not perhaps the real Napoleon, but it's certainly a remarkable creation that leaps off the page.--Jake Kerridge
What a marvelous writer! Read him now, you can thank me later.--Michael Dirda
