Product Description

The first word in this mesmerizing novel is 'No.' It is how the novel's narrator, a middle-aged Hungarian-Jewish writer, answers an acquaintance who asks him if he has a child. It is the answer he gave hiswife (now ex-wife) years earlier when she told him that she wanted one. The loss, longing, and regret that haunt the years between these two 'nos' give rise to one of the most eloquent meditations ever written on the Holocaust.
