Brooklyn, 1947. The war veterans have come home. Jackie Robinson is about to become a Dodger. And in one close-knit working-class neighborhood, an eleven-year-old Irish Catholic boy named Michael Devlin has just made friends with a lonely rabbi from Prague. Snow in August is the story of that unlikely friendship—and of how the neighborhood reacts to it.
Note: From the legendary pen of Pete Hamill comes a tale of Old New York. Set in the turbulent times of post-World War II Brooklyn, Snow in August tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a Jewish Rabbi and a young Irish Catholic boy and their travails navigating the cultural and social prejudices of the day. A timely title from a timeless voice, Snow in August is steeped in memory and mysticism, miracles, and morals. A perfect modern fable for listeners seeking a glimpse into a city that once was. -Nick Pouliot
