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""
