Letter from an Unknown Woman - Stefan Zweig

After reading a review on the Savidge Reads blog, I must say I'm intrigued by this collection.  According to one of the comments, Stefan Zweig writes from a female perspective better than the average male author.  

Add to that an award winning translator, Anthea Bell, and it lands on my "I want to read this at some point" list.  I have huge respect (and a little envy) for translators, and believe that among the marks of a truly good translator are that you forget (1) their involvement and (2) that the text was originally in another language.  So, while I don't believe I've read anything she has translated, I may be mistaken.
