    Book details

Just as "The Last of the Just" made Andre Schwarz-Bart world-famous for a novel that transcended conventional views of fiction, so does "The Morning Star" make a claim for uniqueness. Rescued from his papers by his widow, Simone four years after Scwarz-Bart's death, "The Morning Star" is the last word of a writer with a masterful and poignant sense of the past, present, and future. The story begins in the year 3000, in the aftermath of a nuclear war that has decimated our world. The Earth has died but a few orphaned children who have escaped the cataclysm find their way to the stars and immortality. The woman Linemarie belongs to the first generation of these transcendent citizens of the future, and she returns to Earth to study and explore her ancestral heritage. Blending history, religion, mysticism, and folklore with the author's personal connection to the past, in particular to the Holocaust, "The Morning Star" is both a vitally engrossing tale and a powerful recognition of the dark forces of history.

Praise for Andr? Schwarz-Bart:""The Last of the Just" transcends the definition of fiction. It is part history, part vision, forged into a single echoing terrifying outcry, at once lush and sardonic, full of color and heartbreaking richness." --"The New York Times""The conflict over the ethics of aestheticizing horror is as old as genocide itself, but Schwarz-Bart has come up with a unique literary solution....What finally emerges from Schwarz-Bart's book is a celebration of life in all its transience." --"Jewish Review of Books"
