in the 1920s and 1930s Zweig was one of the most translated writers in the world

Although in the 1920s and 1930s Zweig was one of the most translated writers in the world, after his death he fell into obscurity outside his native German language. Within certain literary circles, however, he was known and read, which is likely how numerous Zweig titles were reprinted by Pushkin Press starting in the 1990s. More recently, the New York Review of Books press has published several Zweig titles, including the novella I read, entitled Chess Story and alternatively published under the title The Royal Game.
