Description: Vienna in the late nineteenth century -- with its countervailing images of pomp and profound melancholy -- provides the backdrop for Joseph Roth's final novel. lmmersing himself in the glories of a vanished past, Roth tells the tragic story of Mitzi Schnagel. After being abandoned by her erstwhile lover Captain Taittinger, she is forced into a bordello. It is there that the Persian Shah, on a state visit to the Kaiser, chooses Mitzi as his consort, rewarding her with a gift -- a magnificent string of pearls -- that proves unexpectedly baleful.

Like most of Roth's novels, this is a tale of personal and societal ruin, told in spare Kafka-like prose, and it provides an essential link to our understanding of the extraordinary fictive powers of Joseph Roth, who died tragically in Paris in 1839.
