-----------

In Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel's memoir Night, a scholarly, pious teenager is wracked with guilt at having
survived the horror of the Holocaust and the genocidal campaign that consumed his family. His memories of the nightmare
world of the death camps present him with an intolerable question: how can the God he once so fervently believed in have
allowed these monstrous events to occur? There are no easy answers in this harrowing book, which probes life's essential
riddles with the lucid anguish only great literature achieves. It marks the crucial first step in Wiesel's lifelong
project to bear witness for those who died.

Review
------

“A slim volume of terrifying power.” ―The New York Times

“Required reading for all of humanity.” ―Oprah

“Wiesel has taken his own anguish and imaginatively metamorphosed it into art.” ―Curt Leviant, Saturday Review

“To the best of my knowledge no one has left behind him so moving a record.” ―Alfred Kazin

“What makes this book so chilling is not the pretense of what happened but a very real description of every thought,
fear and the apathetic attitude demonstrated as a response . . . Night, Wiesel's autobiographical masterpiece, is a
heartbreaking memoir. Wiesel has taken his painful memories and channeled them into an amazing document which chronicles
his most intense emotions every step along the way.” ―Jose Del Real, Anchorage Daily News

“As a human document, Night is almost unbearably painful, and certainly beyond criticism.” ―A. Alvarez, Commentary
