Inhaltsangabe: In this searing memoir, the author of Final Payments and Men and Angels unearths startling truths about her father, a man who was both a devoted, imaginative, and loving parent and a man desperate to cover up the underside of the immigrant's encounter with the American dream. A brilliant book about memory and reality, loss and love, The Shadow Man is personal memoir elevated to art.
Rezension: For a so-called "Catholic novelist," the revelation that her father was born a Jew qualifies as something of a literary bomblet; that his past was a tissue of fabrications, that he became an anti-Semite and reactionary, is a revelation that haunts this unusual book. Gordon's search for her father, who died when she was seven, leads her to libraries and archives, to interviews with his associates, to family birth records and finally to the extraordinary project of disinterring and reburying her father's remains. The search becomes a literary quest in which Gordon transforms herself by transforming her images of her father.
