A young journalist steps off a curb and into the path of a speeding taxicab. Is it an accident? Or has a tormented past driven Eliezer, a survivor of the German death camps, to attempt suicide?

What a load of crap! A disjointed, fragged hodge podge of past/present/and kind of future. Beautiful words, but they didn't take me anywhere except - blessedly -another book. Wiesel might be the messenger of the Jewish dead, but this book can be returned to the sender.
