The Torch In My Ear, Paperback / softback Book

The Torch In My Ear Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


In The Torch in My Ear Elias Canetti, Nobel Prize winner, towering intellectual figure and polymath, gives us his second volume of autobiography.

Using as a framework his admiration for his first great mentor, the Viennese writer Karl Kraus, and his passion for his first wife, Veza, Canetti seamlessly incorporates a profoundly perceptive portrait of Vienna and Berlin in the 1920s.

Here are the voices of Brecht, Isaac Babel, George Grosz, and many others.

This is autobiography redefining itself.
