Summary
Stingo comes to Brooklyn by way of Virginia and the Marine Corps. There, he settles in Yetta Zimmerman's rooming house, where the rent is cheap, to devote himself to his novel. Upstairs live Sophie and Nathan. Sophie is a Polish Catholic girl whose wrist bears the grim stamp of a concentration camp; her lover, Nathan, is a charismatic Jewish intellectual. And Stingo, a sex-starved Southern boy, is instantly captivated by Sophie's vulnerable blond beauty. As Stingo struggles with his book and his growing but unrequited love, he becomes Sophie's confidant, irresistibly absorbed in the harrowing story of Nathan's obsessive jealousy and her own unshakeable devotion to him. And as Nathan and Sophie's quarrels intensify, and Stingo is drawn even more into her life, she is compelled, bit by bit, to confront her past--a past strewn with death that she alone survived
