Second Hand Smoke

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the seamy atmosphere of Miami Beach's Collins Avenue, Mila Katz, a streaky card shark and confidante of mobsters, lives by the wits with which she has survived the Holocaust. Second Hand Smoke is the story of Mila's sons, Issac and Duncan, the one secretly abandoned in Poland, and the other, American-born, raised as an avenging Nazi hunter, poisoned with rage.

Told in bursts of fractured realism and dark comedy, Second Hand Smoke is a postmodern mystery of great lyrical power, deep insight, and emotional resonance.

Synopsis:

Told with equal bursts of fractured realism and dark comedy, "Second Hand Smoke" is "an altogether gripping tale of the seemingly endless consequences of the Holocaust" (Chaim Potok).
