DayBook - 2006
This new edition of Day restores Elie Wiesel's original title to the novel initially published in English as The Accident, introducing a narrator who grapples with the experience of being a Holocaust survivor in a world still fraught with tragedy and naïveté. When he is struck by a taxicab in Times Square, he faces weeks of hospitalization. Having narrowly escaped death once again, he begins to reflect on the most significant relationships of his life, including his current love affair with a woman who shares many of his fears. Undolding in vivid flashbacks, Day illuminates the prism of one urvivor's shattered will to live.
