W W Norton & Co Inc, 2008 Near-new condition. Appears unread. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Synopsis "Shockingly brutal, profoundly transcendent." Seattle Times The New York Times - Jascha Hoffman The Seventh Well [is] a novel narrated by a young man who attempts to maintain his own sanity in the death camps by immersing himself in the lives of his fellow prisoners. Originally published in 1971, it is now available in a superb new translation by Michael Hofmann. Wander does not guide the reader on his own journey from boxcar to barbed wire, as Elie Wiesel and Primo Levi have done. Rather, his anonymous narrator undergoes a sort of spiritual education as he studies the doomed men and boys around him. The result is an indirect portrait of a man trying to grasp an unthinkable trauma. Biography: Liberated at Buchenwald in 1945, Fred Wander was born in Vienna in 1916, where he died in 2006. For his translations, acclaimed poet Michael Hofmann has won the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, the Dublin International IMPAC Award, the PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Prize, the Helen and Kurt Wolff Translator's Prize, the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize, and The SchlAngel-Tieck Prize (four times). He is the highly acclaimed translator of, among others, Kafka, Brecht, and Joseph Roth. . Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., W W Norton & Co Inc, 2008

The Seventh Well - used book

1970, ISBN: 9780393065381

He grew up on the street, a high school dropout. In 1938 he left his mother and sister behind in Vienna and fled on foot to France, where later he was put on a train to Auschwitz. Transported from camp to camp, Fred Wander was haunted for twenty-five years by the crystalline, episodic stories that chronicle the plight of his fellow inmates. Only after the tragic death of his little daughter did these voices pour forth. The result was this novel, published in East Germany in 1970. Finally it appears in English in this masterful translation, its haunting cadences evoking Levi and Celan, its backstory as heartrending as Suite Francaise. Wander demonstrates that the survival of a single man is a collaborative enterprise. The Seventh Well, named after the well of truth, recalls Dante's Inferno with its mesmerizing descent into evil. Its existence is a miracle. The Seventh Well Wander, Fred / Hofmann, Michael, W. W. Norton & Company
