Too Many Men : Ruth Rothwax is a successful, independent New Yorker and the owner of Rothwax Correspondence. She can find order and meaning in the words she writes for other people - condolence letters, thank-you letters, even you-were-great-in-bed letters. But as the devoted daughter of Edek Rothwax, an Auschwitz survivor, Ruth can find no words to help her understand the loss her family experienced during World War II. Ruth confronts her parents' painful memories - and discovers her own future. The gripping story of a woman's search for memory and meaning, and the reconciliation of present and past within the complicated fabric of family, Too Many Men is an evocative exploration of the reverberations of loss, and a remarkable journey of the heart that no reader will easily forget.
