As Cohen recounts his disturbing and moving story, small but telling inconsistencies appear in his narrative. Heniek begins to believe that Cohen is not the secular Jew he claims to be, but may, in fact, be a student of practical Kabbalah? of magic. Why is he lying? And what is the importance of the anagrams he creates for the names of his friends and relatives? Heniek traces his suspicions and comes to an astonishing conclusion?one that has consequences for his own identity and life, and perhaps for the reader's as well.

Praise for "The Warsaw Anagrams"
"Part murder mystery and part historical fiction, Richard Zimler's latest novel, The Warsaw "Anagrams," renews the impact of the large-scale atrocities committed by the Nazis on millions of Jews by comparing them to the specific and gruesome murder of a child. Jewish folklore, "Anagrams," deceit, and treachery all play a part in a novel that successfully makes personal a massacre whose scope is all too easy to diminish by quoting a mostly abstract number: 6 million . . . Zimler's a good writer who maintains his story's suspense but prevents it from devolving into a commonplace page-turner . . . "Anagrams" is a thrilling and solemn story that depicts evil in a realistic way." -- "Boston Globe"
"The highly unusual setting adds tension to the investigation, and Zimler successfully manages to convey the horrors of the Holocaust through the experiences of one family." --"Publishers Weekly"
"An elderly Jewish psychiatrist investigates

"The Warsaw Anagrams is both a fast-moving, readable mystery and a rich, serious novel. Despite the many books and endless discussions on the Holocaust, Zimler offers a fresh voice, one that has endured anger and terror to offer us optimism." "Tikkun""

Book Description:
