Description

It is Warsaw in the 1930s. Aaron Greidinger is an aspiring young writer and the son of a rabbi, who struggles to be true to his art when he is faced with the chance of riches and a passport to America. But as the Nazis threaten to invade Poland, Aaron rediscovers Shosha, his childhood sweetheart – still living on Krochmalna Street, still strangely childlike – who has been waiting for him all these years. In the face of unimaginable horror, he chooses to stay…

One of Isaac Bashevis Singer’s most personal works, Shosha is an unforgettable novel about conflicted desires, lost lives and the redemption of one man.
