In 1791 Austria, Madame Maria Anna Berchtold von Sonnenburg journeys to Vienna to pay her final respects to her brother, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who died under mysterious circumstances, and becomes submerged in a world of suspicion and intrigue.
November 9, 2011 It's all about fiction this week with a stunning magical realist debut from the young Tea Obreht, a fantastical family fable from Walter Mosley, Matt Rees' conspiracy-laden historical drama about Mozart's sister, and a haunting novel of colonialism gone awry by Swedish author Henning Mankell.
