Editorial Reviews

"God-tormented, God-intoxicated, The Town Beyond the Wall is a fiction which refuses to be a novel in any usual sense. It is an exemplary tale such as people may in terror and in hope tell one another. It is a legend—archaic, modern, timeless—of an ascent from purgatory to possibility."
Newsweek
 
"Elie Wiesel does not describe, he casts a spell. His imagination is in a state of trance. His words are a voice crying in the hideousness of our time."
—Abraham Joshua Heschel
 
"Not since Albert Camus has there been such an eloquent spokesman for man."
The New York Review of Books
