    In this brilliant, multi-layered novel, a young Southerner, Stingo, wants to become a writer. In Brooklyn, he meets Nathan, a brilliant Jewish intellectual involved in a turbulent love-hate affair with Sophie, a beautiful Polish woman. She has a terrible wound in her past, one that impels both Sophie and Nathan toward destruction.

    Sound was great, loved the reader. Love anything having to do with the Holocaust, and had always heard what a fantastic novel this was. Perhaps, it would have been better had this been an unabridged version. I could never understand why the protagonist was attracted to this dysfunctional woman. This version failed to help me sympathize with Sophie. It was just so-so
