A deep study of the unhappy heart by one of the masters of the psychological novel, Journey into the Past, here for the first time in America, is a previously unpublished novella that was found among Zweigrs"s stories after his death. Investigating the strange ways in which love, in spite of everything-time, war, betrayal-can last, Zweig tells the story of Louis, an ambitious young man from a modest background who falls in love with the wife of his rich employer. His love is returned, and indeed the couple vow to live together, but then Louis is sent to Mexico on business and, while he is away, the First World War breaks out. With travel and even communication across the Atlantic shut down, Louis makes a new life in Mexico. Years later, however, he returns to Germany to find his former beloved a widow and their feelings, though altered, no less engaged. Is it possible for love to survive precisely as the impossible?

Born in Vienna, the prolific Zweig was a poet in his early years. In the 1920s, he achieved fame with the many biographies he wrote of famous people including Balzac, Dostoevsky, Dickens and Freud. Erasmus with whom he closely identified, was the subject of a longer biography. He also wrote the novellas Amok (1922) and The Royal Game (1944). As Nazism spread, Zweig, a Jew, fled to the United States and then to Brazil. He hoped to start a new life there, but the haunting memory of Nazism, still undefeated, proved too much for him. He died with his wife in a suicide pact.

Her translations include works of non-fiction, literary and popular fiction, and books for young people including classic German works by the Brothers Grimm, Clemens Brentano, Wilhelm Hauff and Christian Morgenstern. Bell has also served on the committee of the Translators` Association and the jury panel of the Schlegel-Tieck German translation prize in Great Britain. She has been the recipient of a number of translation prizes and awards, among them the 1987 Schlegel-Tieck Award for Hans Bermans The Stone and the Flute (Viking) and the first Marsh Award for Childrens Literature in Translation for Christine Nstlingers A Dogs Life (Andersen Press). Bell was selected by a five-member jury as the recipient of the 2002 Helen and Kurt Wolff Translators Prize for her exceptional translation of W.G. Sebalds novel Austerlitz, published Random House.
