- DescriptionTranslated by Marion Wiesel A profoundly and unexpectedly intimate, deeply affecting summing up of his life so far, from one of the most cherished moral voices of our time. Eighty-two years old, facing emergency heart surgery and his own mortality, Elie Wiesel reflects back on his life. Emotions, images, faces and questions flash through his mind. His family before and during the unspeakable Event. The gifts of marriage and children and grandchildren that followed. In his writing, in his teaching, in his public life, has he done eugh for memory and the survivors? His ongoing questioning of God where has it led? Is there hope for mankind? The world s tireless ambassador of tolerance and justice has given us this lumius account of hope and despair, an exploration of the love, regrets and abiding faith of a remarkable man.
