Joseph Roth: Letters from a visionary correspondent

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/books/article/joseph_roth_letters_from_a_visionary_correspondent_20120425

Among the many Roths who figure importantly in Jewish letters — Henry, Cecil and Philip are only the most famous — perhaps the least celebrated is Joseph Roth. As a novelist (“The Radetzky March”) and an essayist (“The Wandering Jews”), but even more crucially as a foreign correspondent for German newspapers during the 1920s and early 1930s, Roth was an eyewitness to the great events of the 20th century.
