Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shosha is a hauntingly lyrical love story set in Jewish Warsaw on the eve of its annihilation. Aaron Greidinger, an aspiring Yiddish writer and the son of a distinguished Hasidic rabbi, struggles to be true to his art when faced with the chance at riches and a passport to America. But as he and the rest of the Writers' Club wait in horror for Nazi Germany to invade Poland, Aaron rediscovers Shosha, his childhood love-still living on Krochmalna Street, still mysteriously childlike herself-who has been waiting for him all these years.

About the Author

Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-91) was the author of many novels, stories, children's books, and memoirs. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978.

This story is fantastic. Not only are you in the midst of the ideas and movements taking shape and place in Warsaw (and Europe) on the eve of the invasion, but you are immersed in a literary adventure and love story like none other. Singer's style is rich with such different flavors of philosophy, religion, and revolution that the story stays with you long after it is over. A great work of historical fiction.
