This selection of novellas, translated by the award-winning Anthea Bell, begins with' Did He Do It?' A curious whodunit set in England, it nonetheless has the extraordinary psychological insight that typifies Zweig's best work. 'The Miracles of Life' explores the conflicting forces of belief and art, love and obsession, amidst the religious struggles of Renaissance Antwerp. Finally, two Viennese stories, 'The Governess' and 'Downfall of the Heart' are shattering in their portrayal of disillusionment - two little girls move from cosy chidlhood to the cold glare of adulthood in a single morning, and a father's heart breaks irrevocably. Wide-ranging and compelling, this is another brilliant collection of stories from Austria's rediscovered master of twentieth-century European literature.

A Revolutionary Solution to the #1 Marriage Problem Why does communication between couples remain the number one marriage issue? “Because,” says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, “most spouses don’t know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in ‘code,’ but they won’t crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect.” Dr. Eggerichs’ best-selling book, Love & Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate to each other. In The Language of Love & Respect, he presents a practical, step-by-step approach for how husbands and wives can learn to speak each other’s distinctly different language—respect for him, love for her. The result is mutual understanding and a successful, happy marriage. Previously released as Cracking the Communication Code
