Editorial Reviews

"A slim volume of terrifying power." -The New York Times"Required reading for all humanity." -Oprah Winfrey"Wiesel has taken his own anguish and imaginatively metamorphosed it into art." -Curt Leviant, Saturday Review"To the best of my knowledge no one . . . has left behind him so moving a record." -Alfred Kazin, The Reporter"What makes this book so chilling is not the pretense of what happened but a very real description of every thought, fear and the apathetic attitude demonstrated as a response . . . Night, Wiesel's autobiographical masterpiece, is a heartbreaking memoir. Wiesel has taken his painful memories and channeled them into an amazing document which chronicles his most intense emotions every step along the way." -Jose Del Real, Anchorage Daily News"As a human document, Night is almost unbearably painful, and certainly beyond criticism." -A. Alvarez, Commentary
