Summary :

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 basis for a famed and honored movie with Meryl Streep (Academy Award Winner), the novel has gained in power through the two decades after its original publication.
