Two award-winning works of fiction by one of America''s finest
writers, together in one collection.
In "The Shawl," a woman named Rosa Lublin watches a concentration
camp guard murder her daughter. In "Rosa," that same woman appears
30 years later, "a mad woman and a scavenger" in a Miami hotel. She
has no life in the present because her past will never end. In both
stories, there is a shawl-a shawl that can sustain a starving
child, inadvertently destroy her, or magically conjure her back to
Both stories were originally published in the New Yorker
in the 1980s; each was included in the annual Best American Short
Stories and awarded First Prize in the annual O. Henry Prize
Stories collection. Each succeeds in imagining the unimaginable:
the horror of the Holocaust and the unfillable emptiness of its
aftermath. Fiercely immediate, complex, and unforgettable, each is
a masterwork by a writer the New York Times hailed as "the
most accomplished and graceful literary stylist of our time."
