The Shawl

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Cynthia Ozick

Narrated By: Yelena Shmulenson

Publisher: HighBridge Company

Date: November 2008

Duration: 2 hours 4 minutes

Summary:

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 thirty 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 life.

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.'
