Reviewer: Donna Rifkind, (Washington Post)

"The book's style and themes will be familiar to those acquainted with his previous fiction...yet A MAD DESIRE TO DANCE shows the sensibility of a literary wanderer who has not finished searching for answers to his original anguished questions."

Reviewer: Elsbeth Lindner, (Miami Herald)

"Wiesel's ferocious diatribe against the effects of meaningless suffering is relentless, humorless, often abstract, but its obduracy must be weighed against his unarguable experience. Other writers may have tackled aspects of this material more gracefully, with greater poetic sensitivity, but none could claim to be more committed than Wiesel, whose life and work can seem one indivisible act of will."

Reviewer: M.E. Collins, (Chicago Sun-Times)

"Elie Wiesel once more confirms his influence as a master storyteller who can weave an intricate narrative into a complex portrait of a man at once obliterated and remade."

Reviewer: Kevin O'Kelly, (Boston Globe)

"This novel is filled with gorgeous prose. In his moments of madness Doriel speaks nonsense that is at times reminiscent of the riddling maxims of Shakespeare's clowns."

"Interactions between a patient and his therapist elucidate the human condition in the latest from Nobel Prize winner Wiesel. ...Philosophy meets psychology in this profound, often poetic novel." (starred review)
