FRANZ WERFEL: A Life in Prague, Vienna & Hollywood
By Peter Stephan Jungk, Translated from German by Anselm Hollo
Franz Werfel was born in Prague in 1890, the son of middle-class Jews. He died in Los Angeles in 1945, the renowned author of such best-sellers as The Forty Days of Musa Dagh and The Song of Bernadette. In this first full-length biography, Peter Stephan Jungk tells the story of Werfel's odyssey from Central Europe to California as a mirror of the political and cultural upheavals of the the time.
