Michael Hofmann - Joseph Roth

Friday 17th February 2012 6:30pm - 7:30pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

Joseph Roth was one of the great writers of the 20th century, best known for The Radetzky March, one of the most important novels of the last 100 years. His many other books and journalism made him the great elegist of the cosmopolitan, tolerant and doomed Central European culture that flourished in the dying days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. At the end of the century there was much renewed interest in Roth, not least thanks to the efforts of Michael Hofmann, who has now translated Roth's letters to create a stunning biography and a classic of literature. The letters span the breadth of Roth's life, from his schoolboy years - in letters to his girl cousins in the Austrian provinces - to the veteran of 44, marked by war, poverty, alcoholism, the loss of his wife through madness, and two decades of prolific work. It is a deeply moving portrait of the life of the writer as an outsider; in exile from a world he no longer recognized as his own. Hofmann talks about Roth and his life and work.
