Elie Wiesel

A Mad Desire to Dance

€ 17.95

Now in paperback, Wiesel's newest novel "reminds us, with force, that his writing is alive and strong. The master has once again found a startling freshness."--"Le Monde des Livres" (br)A European expatriate living in New York, Doriel suffers from a profound sense of desperation and loss. His mother, a member of the Resistance, survived World War II only to die soon after in France in an accident, together with his father. Doriel was a hidden child during the war, and his knowledge of the Holocaust is largely limited to what he finds in movies, newsreels, and books. Doriel's parents and their secrets haunt him, leaving him filled with longing but unable to experience the most basic joys in life. He plunges into an intense study of Judaism, but instead of finding solace, he comes to believe that he is possessed by a dybbuk. (br)Surrounded by ghosts, spurred on by demons, Doriel finally turns to Dr. Therese Goldschmidt, a psychoanalyst who finds herself particularly intrigued by her patient. The two enter into an uneasy relationship based on exchange: of dreams, histories, and secrets. And despite Doriel's initial resistance, Dr. Goldschmidt helps bring him to a crossroads--and to a shocking denouement. (br)"In its own high-stepping yet paradoxically heart-wracking way, (Wiesel's novel) can most assuredly be considered beautiful (almost beyond belief)."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer "
