Jonathan YardleyAharon Appelfeld is more than just a face in the (steadily diminishing) crowd of Holocaust survivors. He is a writer of genuine distinction who in his previous books -- works of fiction, most notablyBadenheim 1939 and The Age of Wonders -- transformed his own experience into literature of exceptional clarity and power. Thus, apart from its own merits, The Story of a Life provides the factual evidence upon which much of the fiction is based and deepens our understanding of this writer's work.
