The Judges - Elie Wiesel
1st American Edition. 1st Printing. Published 1999.
From Elie Wiesel, a gripping novel of guilt, innocence, and the perilousness of judging both.
A plane en route from New York to Tel Aviv is forced down by bad weather. A nearby house provides refuge for five of its passengers: Claudia, who has left her husband and found new love; Razziel, a religious teacher who was once a political prisoner; Yoav, a terminally ill Israeli commando; George, an archivist who is hiding a Holocaust secret that could bring down a certain politician; and Bruce, a would-be priest turned philanderer.
Their host--an enigmatic and disquieting man who calls himself simply the Judge--begins to interrogate them, forcing them to face the truth and meaning of their lives. Soon he announces that one of them--the least worthy--will die.
"The Judges" is a powerful novel that reflects the philosophical, religious, and moral questions that are at the heart of Elie Wiesel's work.
Condition: Very Good.
