Don't let the title fool you. This isn't really about Mrs.Seidenman, but rather about a group of characters, loosely connected by her. This is Warsaw under the Nazi occupation, and these characters circle and touch each other briefly, like dust motes in Brownian motion. In the midst of a character's actions, the author often pauses to give us a brief summary of what will happen in the rest of the character's life. All these threads are so deftly interwoven that the tapestry of the story is beautiful.
