This is one of the most profound, and most moving, and most profoundly moving works I have read in my life--and certainly within the last year. It's one long run-on paragraph (with many sentences, thank goodness) of a man who is tortured by his relationship with his past: "a tale of identity and memory--the story of a middle-aged man taking stock of his life in the ever-present shadow of the Holocaust." It's extraordinary, and it will not take you long to read...to boot.
