Andre Schwarz-Bart and THE LAST OF THE JUST

Andre Schwarz-Bart died last week at the age of 78. His great novel The Last of the Just was reissued in paperback by Overlook in 2000.

"No one who reads The Last of the Just can ever be quite the same again. Though it is a stark tragedy on an epis scale, it is told with subtle and warm understanding for the foibles of mankind and for the irony and humor of man's way in this strange world."--Willim J. Shirer, author of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich
