In the days following the Six-Day War, a survivor of the Holocaust visits the reunited city of Jerusalem. At the Western Wall in the Old City, he encounters the beggars and madmen that congregate there every evening, who force him to confront the ghosts of his past and his ties to the present.

Weaving together myth and mystery, parable and paradox, Wiesel beckons the reader on a spiritual journey back and forth in time, always returning to Jerusalem.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Very remarkable, indeed, outstanding.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Perhaps the first major novel to bring to bear on the destiny of the Jew all the resources of modern European literary experience combined with the storytelling techniques of the Hasidic masters.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “[Davidson] narrates beautifully; the very timbre of his voice is compelling, and he delivers an authoritative, intelligent and rich performance.”

    Audiofile

  • “In parable, spiritual exploration, archaic myth and surreal tableau, Wiesel, through the character of David, a wandering stranger in Jerusalem, adumbrates the tough, pragmatic realities of the Six Day war with the ghosts of Jewish dead...the intent and the passion is fixed and sustained.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller
