Book Description

""Wandering Star is a luminous lesson in humanity amid the ruins of civilization and intelligence.""—Le Figaro

""Wandering Star can unquestionably be ranked among the very great novels. This is true not only because of the precision and evocative power of the writing, the subtlety and balance of the construction, the magnitude and loftiness of the subject, but also because of the stature and the trajectory of the protagonist, Esther Greve, who survives the Holocaust only to be confronted in the land of her dreams with another tragedy.""—L Humanite

""Those unfamiliar with Mr. Le Clezio and his work should know that he is considered that rare beast by the French: an artist and a best-selling author.""—Dallas Morning News

 

""This novel brilliantly depicts the universality of human suffering, but it also affirms the existence of kindness and understanding...Le Clezio rises above politics and religious and cultural differences to express the girls humanity in the struggles they both face.""—MultiCultural Review

""...the beauty of Le Clezios language belies the horror of his subject...We can only hope that Esther and Nejma might someday walk out of these pages, meet once more, and plant and nourish the garden that others battle so feverishly to destroy.""—Bloomsbury Review

 

""Striking a delicate balance between despair and dignity, between incantation and prayer, in [Wandering Star], Le Clezio touches upon each of the many themes he has addressed during his thirty years as a novelist, mixing and weaving them together into a story that combines elements of adventure, literary epic, confession, and history. It is at one and the same time a painful cry and peaceful sigh.""—Telerama

 

""From page one, I knew I was in capable hands. J.M.G. Le Clezios novel of a young Jewish girl coming of age in wartime France is compelling.""—Baltimore Jewish Times

 

""Beautifully written and seamlessly translated by C. Dickson, Wandering Star is both a coming-of-age story and a powerful tale of survival. For readers hoping to better understand the world we live in, this book also helpt shed light on current events in the Middle East.""—MoorishGirl

 

""Le Clezio goes beyond politics, cultural differences, and historical moments to cast light on the universal feelings in experiences of suffering and the struggles, desires, and dreams growing out of such experiences.""—Midwest Book Review

 

""Le Clezio has fashioned an intimate, searching novel about the price of war and exile.""—Stewart ONan

 

""[An] exquisitely written story...I was struck by the beauty in the midst of the searing pain.""—Penny Rosenwasser, author of Voices from a Promised Land

 

J.M.G. Le Clezio is that rare combination of best-selling author and artist of the highest order. Wandering Star (A Lannan Translation Selection) received extraordinary critical praise in France. Pierre Lepape extolled it in Le Monde, noting that Le Clezio neither moralizes nor takes a political stance: ""He goes much farther than that, much deeper; he seeks the signs of human misery and of potential peace at the very heart of life, in a confrontation with time and the elements; with the sun and the earth, with birth and death, with the mystery of origins and the enigma of the future, with the necessity of both remembering and forgetting, without which nothing can be healed.""

Wandering Star tells two discrete stories of two young girls, one Jewish
