The Morning Star
[a Novel]Book - 2011
The newly discovered masterpiece from internationally bestselling author Andr#65533; Schwarz-Bart. The Last of the Just, Andre Schwarz-Bart's debut masterpiece, won him international acclaim and the Prix Goncourt. Now, four years after his death, Schwarz-Bart's last novel The Morning Star has been rescued by his widow from his papers. The story begins in the aftermath of a nuclear war that has reduced our world to ashes. Luckily, a few found their way to the stars and into immortality. In the year 3000, nostalgic for the past, they return to earth in an effort to reconstruct the lives of the people who lived there. They discover the records of the wandering Jews of Judea, Palestine and Israel and an accounting of a mysterious massacre that had occurred ten centuries earlier. The Morning Star flows between the poetic, the fantastic and the realistic as it weaves the tale of the Jewish people from Abraham to the Holocaust and into the future.
