Roth, Joseph - The Radetzky March - ( Item 126772 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2014. First Thus. Fine Hardback. Sealed. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight bump to the edge of one panel of slipcase. Introduced by William Boyd. Illustrated by Tim Laing. At once epic and intimate, this deeply compassionate portrait of a family and the empire they serve places its author alongside Tolstoy and Chekhov. Joseph Roth was born in East Galicia, now Western Ukraine, in 1894, to an Austrian Jewish family. The Radetzky March; his acknowledged masterpiece; was published in 1932, seven years before he died in impoverished exile in Paris. This edition uses the acclaimed translation by Michael Hofmann, which was largely responsible for the revival of this neglected classic. Tim Laing has created a series of photo-realist pencil drawings that celebrate the story's naturalism. In his introduction, novelist William Boyd praises this remarkable novel which, 'because of its deep, sympathetic, non-judgmental understanding of our flawed humanity, achieves greatness'. Bound in buckram, blocked with a design by Tim Laing. Set in Janson. 352 pages. Frontispiece and 8 colour illustrations. 9" x 6¼". A disintegrating empire revealed through three vivid lives. From the Folio Society description.
