As the stories grow together, the book shows itself to be as cohesive and impressive as any novel.Writing that proves a marvelous paradigm shift in the life and times of the 'nowhere man'. 210p.

    On March 2, 1908, ninenteen-year-old Lazarus Averbuch, a recent Jewish immigrant from Eastern Europe to Chicago, knocked on the front door of the house of George Shippy, the chief of Chicago police. When Shippy came to the door, Averbuch offered him what he said was an important letter. Instead of taking the letter, Shippy shot Averbuch twice, killing him. When Shippy released a statement casting Averbuch as a would-be anarchist assassin and agent of foreign political operatives, he all but set off a city and a country already simmering with ethnic and political tensions. Over a hundred years later, a young writer in Chicago becomes obsessed with Lazarus's story, their stories fusing into one. Illus., b&w photographs. 294p.
