A book of legends of Hasidic rebbes without basis in reality and lots of reinterpreting to fit the author’s objective to inspire through these stories. Had Wiesel not taken these legends so literally perhaps we could have taken them in gist of Hasidic stories (maisos). As it is, the result is a pretty silly book.
