9780006543299: Life with a Star

Weil based this novel on his experiences hiding from the Nazis in Czechoslovakia in order to avoid the concentration camps. In recommending the book to FSG for translation into English, Philip Roth wrote: "I think that the book is, without a doubt, one of the outstanding novels I've read about the fate of a Jew and the Jews under the Nazis. I don't really know of one quite like it."

In 1942 he was summoned for transport to a concentration camp with the rest of Prague Jewry but managed to escape and hide for the duration of the war. He died in Prague in 1959.
