Open Heart

Open Heart
by Elie Wiesel [Biography Wiesel]

The book is a very poetic description of Wiesel's recent open heart surgery, where he discusses his son, wife, grandchildren, and family, Holocaust flashbacks, and philosophizes on life, death, and God. A very short read at only 79 pages, with really short chapters, some less than a page. He mentions several of his other writings, and the inspiration behind them as well throughout his life. Very uplifting and spiritual. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Elie Wiesel - Night, Dawn, Twilight, Legends of our Time.] -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library

[Also available in downloadable E-book format.]
