In the summer of 1979, 21-year-old Felix Roth arrives in Manhattan, sent by the Roth family to look after his older brother who is threatening to disappear into a Hasidic sect. But Felix has a plan of his own to meet the great Yiddish writer Isaac Bashevis Singer and show him his one finished short story.
Felix's quest takes an unexpected turn when he falls for Singer's niece, the beautiful and headstrong Hadassah. But his pursuit of Singer and Hadassah is complicated by the presence of Alice, Felix's demanding lover and the wife of his boss; by a brilliant but possibly deranged scholar; by a stint writing erotica; and by the New York police.
Will Felix show his story to Isaac Bashevis Singer? Will he lose his brother? Will he win Hadassah's affection? Felix Roth is a rollicking trip into high art and even higher passions.
