В литературния живот на ХХ век името Стефан Цвайг (1881 - 1942) оставя отпечатък в много области; австийският писател твори в областта на романа, разказа, биографията, драмата, занимава се с журналистика. Известен е на българския читател най-вече със знаменитите си биографии на Мария Антоанета, Мария Стюард, Еразъм Ротердамски, докато разказите и повестите му остават донякъде в сянка.
В най-новия си брой списание BIOGRAPH се стреми да запълни тази празнота, като предлага на читателя три от тези изключителни повести, пропити не само с усета на Цвайг за езика в цялата му богата изразност, а и с болезненото осъзнаване на актуалните за неговото време проблеми на войната през очите на обикновения човек, смазващата хватка на инфлацията, отразена в житейската съдба на малките хора с техните радости, както и на винаги живата тема за копнежа на човешкото сърце. Една от тези повести - "Писмо на една непозната" - през 1948 година е претворена във филм на Хауърд Кох, предложен от Библиотеката на конгреса на САЩ за съхраняване в Националния филмов регистър на САЩ като "културно, исторически и естетически значим" - признание не само за филма, а и за автора на едноименната повест, останал в историята на литературата като един от писателите с най-гъвкаво перо. Сборникът съдържа повестите: "Невидимата сбирка" "Случката край Женевското езеро" "Писмо на една непозната"
Matt Brennan, a brilliant young investment banker in the City of London, is celebrating his greatest deal yet: orchestrating a mega-merger that will transform the electronics industry.
He is rich and successful beyond his wildest hopes. But his personal life is a mess. Fed up with his constant work, his wife is about to walk out on him. And he is plagued by mysterious dreams ...of the Inquisition. When Matt travels to Carcassonne in Southern France to buy a house he hopes will put his marriage and his life back together, he is plunged into the mysteries of the Cathar Sect, a fanatical branch of mediaeval Catholicism also known as the 'the Perfects'. As he unlocks their secrets, his life is at stake.
And Matt Brennan is about to discover that no man, and no religion, is ever perfect. 'Almost Perfect' is an enthralling thriller that straddles the centuries with consummate skill. It combines the plotting of Dan Brown, with the action of Steve Berry, and historical knowledge of Kate Mosse, and the story-telling of Lee Child. 'A knock-out book. John Childress is at the top of his game.” - Matt Lynn, author of the best-selling Death Force thrillers. “A brilliant, thrilling combination of the ancient and modern.” - Tom Kasey, best-selling author of Trade Off.
