- Author Bio
A scintillating biographical study of the one of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century, by one of the bestselling writers of the twentieth.
In this vivid biography, Zweig eschews traditional academic discussion and focuses on Nietzsche’s habits, passions and obsessions. This work, concentrating on the man rather than the work, on the tragedy of his existence and his apartness from the world in which he moved in enforced isolation, is a tour de force, drawing the reader inexorably into Nietzsche’s tragic trajectory.
Illustrated with numerous photographs relating to Nietzsche and his European locations, this superb translation by Will Stone is essential reading for anyone interested in Nietzsche, Zweig, first-class biographies and philosophy.

’Zweig’s accumulated historical and cultural studies [are] almost too impressive to take in.’ — Clive James
‘Zweig is the most adult of writers: civilised, urbane, but never jaded or cynical; a realist who none the less believe in the possibility – the necessity – of empathy.’ — Independent
‘Zweig… deserves to be famous again, and for good.’ — TLS
