Product Description:

This novella one of the most haunting things that Joseph Roth ever composed was published in 1939 the year the author died. Like Andreas the hero of the story Roth drank himself to death in Paris but this is not an autobiographical confession. Rather it is a secular miracle-tale in which the vagrant Andreas after living under bridges has a surprising run of good luck that changes his circumstances profoundly. The novella is extraordinarily compressed dry-eyed and witty despite its melancholic subject matter.
