I read this book for the first time when it was originally published. I was entranced, seduced, and mesmerized by Ms. Szeman's writing.  So what does any fan do when they are touched by a literary, artistic work - I wrote a fan letter to the author. Much to my surprise she responded. Her letter was gracious and polite. I tucked it away in between the pages of her book, forever grateful to Ms. Szeman for taking the time to respond.  Recently I discovered that the book was reissued under her real name with added material. Last night I read the newly issued book in one sitting, again touched by the story, by the poetry weaved into the prose, and Ms. Szeman's own back story of how the book came to life. Some may say that it is not an easy book to follow, but the Holocaust is not an easy subject to write about. I urge you to disciple yourself, surrender to the flow of her words, and embrace the unexpected structure jumping from the past to the present; from the present to the past. Listen to the voices of the characters. Really listen, and maybe, like me, you will be changed by this book.

I read this when it first came ou I had borrowed it from the library; I immediatly went out and tried to buy it. After months of searching, I finally got it and I guard it - my mother's pals have tried to borrow it....Anyhow, I can't wait to read the 20th anniversary edition. What a great book......
