Translated by Marion Wiesel A profoundly and unexpectedly intimate, deeply affecting summing up of his life so far, from one of the most cherished moral voices of our time. After years of health problems--but none with his heart--Elie Wiesel, then eighty-two, was told that he needed immediate surgery to clear his blocked arteries. On what he knew might very well be his deathbed, Wiesel reflected on his many losses and accomplishments, and on all that remained to be done. Fortunately for all of us, he survived to turn those reflections into this luminous book. He writes of his affection for his family, departed or still on this earth; his aspirations for, and uncertainties about, his writings; and his hope that he has made the world a better place. Open Heart reveals the love, regrets, and abiding faith of an extraordinary man. It is powerfully moving and wholly unforgettable.
