I immediately loved this book, his one, big, great novel-and suddenly there weredozens more in front of me waiting to read.’ – Wes Anderson The Society of the Crossed Keys contains Wes Anderson’s selections from the writings of the great Austrian author Stefan Zweig, whose life and work inspired The Grand Budapest Hotel.
