Overview


Literary Nonfiction. Travel Writing. A work of creative nonfiction, VIENNA VOICES offers a nuanced portrait of the enigmatic "City of Dreams," whose intellectual and artistic culture reached its height at the end of the nineteenth century, only to be eclipsed in the twentieth by the collapse of the Habsburg empire and the rise of National Socialism.
