"After sixty five years since its original publication in Hebrew and a Holocaust, A Guest for the Night
has not lost its poignancy. Written from the perspective of the returning native son who is painfully aware that you cannot go home again, the novel describes a Jewish society in a liminal state—a society which war destroyed and the winds of modernity, socialism, and Zionism disintegrated. Its transformation was still incomplete, yet its potential future was waiting in the wings. But history turned the future of the characters in the novel into the world's worst nightmare, and, for the modern reader, the novel itself into a prelude to tragedy."—Dan Ben-Amos
