Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
A European orphan transplanted to New York, Doriel is shaped by the pain, desperation, and loss of the deaths of his parents following World War II and the horrors of the Holocaust, and seeks solace in an intense study of Judaism, psychoanalysis, and a search for the secrets of his mother's life and his own birth. (General Fiction)
"Interactions between a patient and his therapist elucidate the human condition in the latest from Nobel Prize winner Wiesel. ...Philosophy meets psychology in this profound, often poetic novel." (starred review)
"Wiesel's ferocious diatribe against the effects of meaningless suffering is relentless, humorless, often abstract, but its obduracy must be weighed against his unarguable experience. Other writers may have tackled aspects of this material more gracefully, with greater poetic sensitivity, but none could claim to be more committed than Wiesel, whose life and work can seem one indivisible act of will."
