              At the end of the Great War, Andreas Pum has lost a leg but at least he has a medal and a barrel-organ which he plays on the streets of Vienna. At first the simple-minded veteran is satisfied with his lot, and he even finds an ample widow to marry. But then a public quarrel with ...a respectable citizen on a tram turns Andreas's life onto a rapid downward trajectory. As he loses first his beggar's permit, then his new wife, and even his freedom, he is finally provoked into rejecting his blind faith in the benevolence of both government and God.

              The Silent Prophet was written as the result of Joseph Roth's visit to Moscow in 1926 when speculation about the fate of Trotsky was rife. Roth refered to this work as his 'Trotsky novel', but the experiences of books' hero, the Trotsky-like Friederich Kargan, are as recognisably... those of a less well-known Jewish outsider, a perpetual exile searching for a place in the new Europe and a set of values to counter his own scepticism and growing disallusionment - Joseph Roth himself. Because he is born illegitimate, Friederich Kargan lacks even a social identity. Moving to Vienna he becomes involved both in revolutionary agitation and a love affair. Caught by the authorities on his first trip to Russia, he endures a Siberian interlude before escaping. Moving among various plotters and underground cabals across Europe, he eventually returns to Russia after the February Revolution. He becomes leader of the Red Army, but comes to realise during the civil war that the revolution seems to be over before it has begun; the cause has been betrayed, yesterday's proletariat has become today's bourgeoise; exile might offer the only choice. The Silent Prophet is a beautifully descriptive journey from loneliness into an illusory worldliness and back into loneliness. It is a haunting study in alienation by a master of realistic imagination. The Silent Prophet by Joseph Roth is a haunting and poetic novel of alienation. In this excellent translation we see Roth draw on his own personal experiences as an 'outsider', as well as those of Leon Trotsky - hence Roth himself called this his 'Trotsky novel'. Although left unpublished until after Roth's death, this novel remains a true classic.

              An artillery officer is persuaded by his resentful wife to leave the Austro-Hungarian army to take up a civilian post as inspector of weights and measures in a remote territory near the Russian border. At first attempting to exercise some proper rectitude in his trade duties, he ...is soon at a loss in a shadowy world of smugglers, profiteers and petty crooks. This great, painful novel is both a brilliant evocation of the remote reaches of eastern Europe before the catastrophe of the world wars and a frightening picture of the slow capitulation of a good man with traditional standards to insidious small-time corruption and to his own destructive passion.
