The End of Her is a story of a Jewish family’s immigration to the New World: rising from poverty to wealth as cattle dealers and (possibly) bootleggers, then shattering apart after a murder. It’s also the story of a present-day Jewish family, struggling with memory loss and mortality, trying to understand what earlier generations endured. A heavily researched true-crime family memoir, it alternates between past and present, relying on interviews, official documents, long-lost photos, and dozens of newspaper stories. It’s a story that spans Jewish time and geography, from the Catskills to Winnipeg’s North End, from a Ukrainian shtetl to Jersey City, from Greenwich Village to rural Saskatchewan, from suburban D.C. to the top of Masada.
