This review is from: At the Mind's Limits: Contemplations by a Survivor on Auschwitz and Its Realities (Paperback)
I first read a library copy of this collection some years ago and I had to own it. The prose still cuts and blisters as I remember it. Amery is a very fine writer who, perhaps because of the historic nature of his writings, will be wrongly catalogued and typecast with other "survivor literature". There is a message that transcends Auschwitz that places him with Primo Levi, not just as a fellow survivor, but as a genuine world voice. Amery should be known and read more and admitted in the canon of the immortals.
