Product Details

Praise

“Appelfeld is an astonishingly subtle and sensitive writer whose work refines itself and grows purer over the years. Almost every sentence in The Iron Tracks sparkles with gemlike refraction. . . . Some believe this novel about a Holocaust survivor who travels the trains of south-central Europe in search of a Nazi tormentor is one of the finest books ever written about the pain and memory of war.” 
Chicago Tribune (a Fiction and Nonfiction Favorite for 1998)

“This tale of reparation and retaliation is art at its highest.”
Washington Post

“Aharon Appelfeld’s controlled fiction compresses large themes into small spaces. . . . He is a worthy successor to Kafka.”
—Jonathan Rosen, New York Times Book Review
