Last Jew in Prague

A homeless man recalls how the Nazis gave his grandfather the choice of death or helping them find who murdered 3 SS men in Prague and how his connection to this so upended his life. Blending historical fiction, mystery, and magic realism, Last Jew in Prague is a novel about lifting yourself up when all you want to do is keep falling. But it's more than just a novel. I was once a successful urban professional. I also worked in Prague for years, where I became immersed in the history, culture, and language of the people there. In recent years, though, I’ve struggled with homelessness. This story has helped inspire me forward, and I hope you find it just as inspiring.
