Volker Weidermann Ë 0 REVIEW READ Ø PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ë Volker Weidermann REVIEW Ostende 1936 Sommer der Freundschaft It’s the summer of 1936 and the writer Stefan Zweig is in crisis His German publisher no longer wants him his marriage is collapsing and his house in Austria searched by the police two years earlier no longer feels like home He’s been dreaming of Ostend the Belgian beach town that is a paradise of promenades parasols and old friends So he journeys there with his lover Lotte. Written in a dispassionate journalistic style this novella length book tells the story of a group of migr writers meeting in the genteel resort of Ostend in 1936 The book revolves around the friendship of the urbane wealthy and successful Stefan Zweig and the garrulous alcoholic and truculent Joseph Roth Zweig was in Ostend when the Great War unfolded and recalled his excitement at the thought of such world changing events However that initial exuberant thrill had eventually changed and now with another conflict looming the author feels deep unease With all of those assembled struggling not least financially with many having books burned and banned the group are refugees in vacationland They talk and plot and plan but remain exiles powerless and in retreat Even those like Zweig who have managed to maintain some literary presence in Germany are looked at askance by the others Roth in particular seeing it as a kind of betrayal and congratulating the author when he is finally bannedThis is not only an interesting portrait of a historical and literary period but of the sometimes difficult relationship between Zweig and Roth Roth was from Eastern Europe and to the assimilated Western Zweig those from the East were seen as embarrassing relatives Roth who looked up to Zweig and relied upon him for financial help and grudgingly accepted his concern but was unable to curb his drinking Both men had lovers that summer Zweig accompanied by his secretary Lotte Altmann while Roth embarked on a relationship with author Irmgard Keun However hanging over them all is the thought of what will happen when the summer ends This is a thought provoking and interesting read set around the dark days before war descended over Europe
