Wandering Jew The Search For Joseph Roth
The Search For Joseph Roth
de Dennis Marks
Sobre o livro
In this revealing 'psycho-geography', Dennis Marks makes a journey through the eastern borderlands of Europe to learn about the elusive writer Joseph Roth and the world in which he lived. The result is a riveting and involving documentary that reunites Roth with his creative landscape. Best known as the author of the novel 'The Radetsky March' and the non-fiction work, 'The Wandering Jew', was one of the most seductive, disturbing and enigmatic writers of the 20th century. Born in 1894 in the Hapsburg Empire, and dying in Paris in 1939, he was a perpetual displaced person, a traveller, a prophet, a compulsive liar, and a man who covered his tracks.
