Description
 
Elie Wiesel, Anne Borchardt (translator)

Publisher: Hill and Wang Publishers


"Not since Albert Camus has there been such an eloquent spokesman for man." --The New York Times Book Review

The publication of Day restores Elie Wieselís original title to the novel initially published in English as The Accident and clearly establishes it as the powerful conclusion to the authorís classic trilogy of Holocaust literature, which includes his memoir Night and novel Dawn. ďIn Night it is the ĎIí who speaks,Ē writes Wiesel. ďIn the other two, it is the ĎIí who listens and questions.Ē

In its opening paragraphs, a successful journalist and Holocaust survivor steps off a New York City curb and into the path of an oncoming taxi. Consequently, most of Wieselís masterful portrayal of one manís exploration of the historical tragedy that befell him, his family, and his people transpires in the thoughts, daydreams, and memories of the novelís narrator. Torn between choosing life or death, Day again and again returns to the guiding questions that inform Wieselís trilogy: the meaning and worth of surviving the annihilation of a race, the effects of the Holocaust upon the modern character of the Jewish people, and the loss of oneís religious faith in the face of mass murder and human extermination.
