More than any writer I've ever read, Stefan Zweig understands happiness and unhappiness. He understands the circumstances which put people into blissful states and the utter unhappiness that exists when people can't pursue their bliss. The Post Office Girl is far too short, ending before the important questions are answered, but it is a book of two extraordinary acts missing a third act to resolve it. No writer I've ever read, not even Chekhov, is more sympathetic to the plight of people. The fact that he's no longer read by most readers is a scandal of our time.
