Joseph Roth’s The Emperor’s Tomb is a continuation of the saga of the von Trotta family from The Radetzky March.
This novel presents both a powerful, moving look at a decaying society and its journey through World War I and its devastating aftermath, and a story of the erosion of one man’s desperate faith in the virtues of a simple life.
“Roth details without pity the inner life of the authentic self.” —New York Times
