Summary

''Difficult but powerful . . . Wiesel handles the situation expertly, and . . . a multilayered narrative emerges: the journey through sadness and toward redemption; a meditation on the hand dealt to Holocaust survivors; and a valuable parable on the wages of human trauma. While the novel is not always easy sledding, there are ample rewards-intellectual and visceral-for the willing reader.'' -Publishers Weekly ''It is once again a survivor's memories . . . that will rivet readers . . . The terse personal vignettes are gripping . . . The secrets surprise you to the end.'' -Booklist ''A Mad Desire to Dancereminds us, with force, that Wiesel's writing is alive and strong. The master has once again found here a startling freshness.'' -Le Monde des Livres ''A genuine adventure that enriches the reader.'' -L'Eclaireur ''A Mad Desire to Dance[is] an interior adventure driven by the need to know-and the certitude-that only love can heal our most intimate wounds.'' -France Culture From the Hardcover edition.
