Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sol Nazerman survived the Holocaust. His wife and children did not -he witnessed their murder in a concentration camp. He is now a Harlem pawnbroker, emotionally dead and indifferent to the desperation around him, running his shop as a front for a racketeer. Made into an Academy Award-winning film starring Rod Steiger, this is one of the most moving pieces in modern fiction.

About the Author

Edward Lewis Wallant (1926-1962), penned three novels in addition to The Pawnbroker before his death at the age of 36: The Human Season, The Tenants of Moonbloom, and The Children at the Gate. His brief career, however, inspired David R. Mesher to write in the Dictionary of Literary Biography that Wallant was "one of the most important figures among postwar Jewish writers in the United States."
