"A piercing work of fiction with a strong claim to being Singer's 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 centre 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.

Övrig information

* Although Isaac Bashevis Singer emigrated from Poland to the United States in 1935, the circumscribed world of the Polish Jews remained at the heart of his imagination. Beginning with his first major work, Satan in Goray (1935), he used the life of the shtetl as raw material, transforming its folkways, religious practices, superstitions, and sexual habits into superior works of art. From time to time, however, Singer turned his eye upon New World Jews like himself, recording their rapid or reluctant assimilation into the American mainstream. One such book is SHADOWS ON THE HUDSON * He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978
