About the Author

Joseph Roth was born in Galicia in 1894. He worked as a journalist in Vienna and Berlin until Hitler's rise to power. In 1933, he fled to Paris, where he joined a growing community of exiled intellectuals. He died there in 1939.

The poet Michael Hofmann has won numerous prizes for his German translations.

Reviews

Joseph Roth was a cultural monument of Galician Jewry: ironic, compassionate, perfectly pitched to his catastrophic era.--Harold Bloom
With the writings of Kafka and Robert Musil, Roth's work constitutes Austria-Hungary's finest contribution to early-twentieth-century fiction.
The Leviathan is expansive, lyrical in tone, folkloric in manner.--J. M. Coetzee
