Editorial Reviews

Review

"A disturbing yet important work on a universal calamity of the modern era...consistently fascinating."―Star Tribune

"Drawing on memoirs, histories, and archival sources, [Pitzer] offers a chilling, well-documented history of the camps' development.... A potent, powerful history of cruelty and dehumanization."―Kirkus (starred review)

"One Long Night is a don't-look-away narrative of concentration camps, a fearless and elegant tale of human cruelty but also of human courage. And it's told with such undaunted moral clarity, that the story serves to remind all of us that it is never too late to stand up for what is right."―Deborah Blum, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of The Poisoner's Handbook

"Andrea Pitzer has a poet's grace and a documentarian's breadth, along with the curiosity of a reporter whose shoe leather has long ago frayed. In One Long Night, she also proves her rare ability to translate a century of suffering into a groundbreaking narrative that is fluid, lucid, and throbbing with humanity's ache. It will make you see the past - and the present - anew."
Beth Macy, author of Truevine and Factory Man

"A clear-eyed and powerful exposure of the horrors of concentration camps, not just the ones we know about but the ones we've overlooked or ignored. The lengths Andrea Pitzer went to research and report this book prove revelatory."―Annie Jacobsen, author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Pentagon's Brain

"Andrea Pitzer's searing One Long Night proceeds like an epic poem charged with the horror of concentration camps on six continents. It is a tale full of sound and fury, unfortunately signifying plenty. 'Old camps reopen, new ones are born,' Pitzer tells us in her clean prose that is cogent, passionate, profound, and profoundly disturbing."―Peter Davis, Academy Award winner for Hearts and Minds, and author of the novel Girl of My Dreams

"In this engrossing history, Pitzer traces the origins of concentration camps and follows their development over more than a century.... Pitzer excels at focusing this sprawling history on the personal level."―Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Secret History of Vladimir Nabokov

"A penetrating analysis certain to compel a major reassessment of the Nabokov canon."―Booklist (starred review)

"A brilliant examination that adds to the understanding of an inspiring & enigmatic life."―Kirkus (starred review)

"[Pitzer] has done much exemplary primary research, and this book forces one to consider several fascinating quandaries presented by Lolita and Pale Fire."―The New York Review of Books
