I just finished the last 2 chapters of AntiSemite and they get closer to discouraging and disillusioned. I like his style though. There is an American writer, James Salter, who has written an autobiography called Burning The Days, that has a similar feel Rezzori’s book. I first came across him in a short story called Twenty Minutes in a book of stories called Dusk.

The common thread is the emphasis on the ethnic diversity of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the still unresolved question whether human beings can learn to coexist peacefully despite contrasting cultural traditions.
