Read full description of the books:
At once fiercely immediate and complex in its implications, The Shawl succeeds in imagining the unimaginable: the horror of the Holocaust and the emptiness of its aftermath. It was written in 1977 but was first published in the early 1980s in The New Yorker. The Shawl won first prize in the O. Henry Prize Stories and was chosen for Best American Short Stories.
In The Shawl, a woman named Rosa Lublin watches a concentration camp guard murder her daughter. And there is a shawl–a shawl that can sustain a starving child or inadvertently destroy her, or even magically conjure her back to life.
