Open Heart

While one hopes Oopen Heart is not the final work Elie Wiesel produces, if that sadly turns out to be the case, it will serve as a concise, elegant summing up of an extraordinary life and career.

It might be said that Wiesel's memoir "Night" is his original and most masterful "lesson" about the Holocaust, while the rest of his writing is "commentary." If so, we are deeply fortunate to have this intimate self-portrait of a man poised on the threshold of death, with more commentary yet to come.
