Publisher Comments:

"A piercing work of fiction with a strong claim to being Singers masterpiece” (Richard Bernstein, The New York Times), Shadows on the Hudson traces the intertwined lives of a group of Jewish refugees in New York City in the late 1940s. At its center is Boris Makaver, a pious, wealthy businessman whose greatest trial is his unstable daughter, Anna. A chain of events disrupts the lives of the close-knit community as each refugee struggles to reconcile the horrific past with the difficult present, as Singer explores both the nature of faith and the nature of love in the aftermath of the Holocaust.

Synopsis:

From the Upper West Side to Miami's pastel resorts, "Shadows on the Hudson" traces the intertwined destiny of survivors in the aftermath of the Holocaust.

Synopsis:

Serialized in the late 1950s, Shadows on the Hudson was translated from Yiddish and published posthumously as a complete novel in 1998, receiving widespread literary acclaim.

From the Upper West Side to Miami's pastel resorts, Shadows on the Hudson traces the intertwined destiny of survivors in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Nobel Prize-winning author Isaac Bashevis Singer has created a vibrant, resonant, and provocative cast of characters in search of answers to life's greatest dilemmas, challenges, and ironies.

I will treasure this book forever and ever.

The beginning of the novel focuses on a love story between two married people. They are passionate and willing to risk it all to be together. And they do.

The whole of this novel weaves together the lives of these and other New Yorkers (like a Jewish Magnolia!)

Post World War Two, the characters recount the holocaust and its effect. They question (or denounce) God. Some remain devout. Some hold seances. Some lose themselves is romance, business, or politics.

Shadows on the Hudson is deeply philosophical and just plain lovely. I spent many late nights absorbed in it and I will probably read it again. I zealously recommend it.
