summer before the dark, by volker wiedermann, read by peter firth (in the book of the week series)

“The charming resort of Ostend: in 1936 it’s a haven for Middle-Europe emigres. Stefan Zweig strolls the seafront, visits a cafe, and waits for his friend Joseph Roth to arrive.
Also in town are other writers, wives and mistresses, as storm clouds gather over the rest of Europe..”
