Review:

-A masterful storyteller . . . Wiesel creates a kaleidoscope of images that raise tantalizing questions.-
--The Boston Globe
-
From the abyss of the death camps he has come as a messenger to mankind--not with a message of hate and revenge, but with one of brotherhood and atonement.-
--From the Citation for the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize
-Wiesel uses words to craft literary monuments, works that stand as acts of remembrance and as meditations on the nature of remembrance itself.-
--San Francisco Chronicle
-Unquestionably, Wiesel is one of the most admirable, indeed indispensable, human beings now writing.-
--Washington Post

-Not since Albert Camus has there been such an eloquent spokesman for man.-
--The New York Review of Books

From the Back Cover:

Raphael Lipkin is a man obsessed. He hears voices. He talks to ghosts. He is spending the summer at the Mountain Clinic, a psychiatric hospital in upstate New York--not as a patient, but as a visiting professional with a secret, personal quest.A professor of literature and a Holocaust survivor, Raphael, having rebuilt his life since the war, sees it on the verge of coming apart once more. He longs to talk to Pedro, the man who rescued him as a fifteen-year-old orphan from postwar Poland and brought him to Paris, becoming his friend, mentor, hero, and savior. But Pedro disappeared inside the prisons of Stalin's Russia shortly after the war. Where is Pedro now, and how can Raphael discern what is true and what is false without him?
