The late Nobelist's masterpiece takes a candid look into the lives of Holocaust survivors during the late 40s. Set in New York City, Shadows on the Hudson, Volume 3, the third a four-volume audiobook series, draws us into the intertwined lives of a circle of prosperous Jewish refuges.

At the center is Boris Makaver, a pious and wealthy businessman. His greatest trial is his daughter, Anna.

Unhappy in her current marriage, she plans to escape with Hertz Grien, a man torn between ascetic yearnings and romantic entanglements. From Makaver's gloomy Upper West Side apartment to the pastel resorts of Miami-amid family quarrels, zealous religious debates, crooked seances, and a myriad of affairs and marriages-Singer weaves a rich tapestry of American Jewry. Despite the character's fervent and often ironic attempts to decipher life's enigmas, their questions remain, for the most part, unanswered.

This darkest of Singer's tragicomic novels was originally serialized in the Yiddish language publication Forward in the 50s.. Now, finally, in its first English translation, it is revealed to be one his major works. Download and start listening now!
