Tired of his unfruitful existence, Yakov Bok moves to Kiev during Tsar Nicolas II’s reign to seek a better future. He soon finds work, but is forced to keep his Jewish identity a secret. However, after the murder of a Russian boy too close to his workplace, he is accused of carrying out the crime. And in a time of anti-Semitic virulence, there won’t be a lack of witnesses, evidence, and accusations all aimed at condemning him. This novel, which earned Bernard Malamud the Pulitzer Prize, explores how the idea of freedom grows within a man while he is the subject of a great injustice.
