About the Author

Joseph Roth was an Austrian novelist, essayist, journalist, and publisher who was born in 1894 and died in 1939. An outspoken critic of Hitler and militarism, he moved to Paris in 1933. Roths novels, though basically conservative, reflect political awareness and skepticism. His best-known novels are Job, concerning the struggle of Eastern European Jews, and The Radetzky March, written in 1933, which is an ironic portrait of the decline of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and is generally considered to be his masterpiece.
