The Last Of The Just, Schwarz-Bart, Andre
17 The Last Of The Just
Schwarz-Bart, Andre

After questioning the legend of the Just Man as a child, a Jew learns about its meaning and commits himself to his faith during the Second World War. Awarded the Prix Goncourt, this book exceeded 400, 000 copies in the first five months after its publication, a unique record. It has been described by leading French critics as a great novel, as one of the most important books to appear in our time, and as a story that carries us far beyond the confines of literature. It is the celebration of a tragedy, the rehearsal of a crime --perhaps the greatest in the history of civilization--and an analysis of the seeds of nobility and wickedness in the human heart. Previous owner's name, top edge soil, DJ chipped & rubbed. ; 8vo - 8" to 9" tall - 8" to 9" tall; 409 pages; 12544
