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.

Michael Hofmann is a poet and frequent contributor to The New York Times Book Review, and is widely regarded as one of the world's foremost translators of works from German to English. He lives in London.
Reviews

"Rebellion is reminiscent of Chekhov in its uncluttered, melancholy simplicity, while its sense of the larger, crushing incomprehensibility of things echoes Roth's older contemporary, Frank Kafka." --Richard Bernstein, The New York Times

"Roth's fictional world is one of terrifying uncertainty and instability, eerily mirroring his own [life]. His is considered by many to be one of the most important Jewish voices in German literature written between the two wars." --The Forward

"Rebellion puts the last piece of the Roth puzzle in place, leaving readers the gratifying task of exploring the manifold dimensions of this marvelous writer." --The Boston Globe

"Powerful . . . Hofmann's seemingly effortless translation adds greatly to the novel's appeal." --Booklist
