Tod Friendly, now living in an American suburb, is a doctor who worked in the medical unit at Auschwitz. Narrating his story is a doppelganger imprisoned within Dr. Friendly, sharing his every sensory impression; a separate conciousness that is literally living the doctor's life backward from death to birth. This spectral observer's ignorance of the doctor's past combines with the reader's awful knowledge to reverse the numbing effects of time and gives history the impact of direct experience. The jacket has a 1/2" closed tear from the edge of the spine to the front at about the middle of the spine. 168 pages, no marks or tears. Price not clipped. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
