Message from Neil

Just finished reading this beautiful, fast-moving, tragic novel, "The Post-Office Girl" by Stefan Zweig. It was written in the early 30s but has only just been published in English. I think it will haunt me for a long while. Highly recommended (as are many other works by this under-rated writer).
