First published in 1979, this novel opens with Stingo, a young southerner, journeying north in 1947 to become a writer. It leads us into his intellectual and emotional entanglement with his neighbors in a Brooklyn rooming house: Nathan, a tortured, brilliant Jew, and his lover, Sophie, a beautiful Polish woman whose wrist bears the grim tattoo of a concentration camp ... and whose past is strewn with death that she alone survived.

    The narrator reading Sophie's parts sounded a bit unnatural, otherwise great abridged audio book.

    The sadest book you will ever read. Fictional story however if you read some of the history of Holocaust, these things happened, and worse.
