Description - Dead Man's Float by Nicholas Maes

Seventy-year-old Nathan Gelder's recent stroke has done little to appease the obsessive dreams and memories of his parents--both of whom died in the Holocaust--that haunt him relentlessly. While he remains in a paralyzed state, questions of his involvement in the death of rock star Leonard Skye Barvis begin to surface. Riots are staged worldwide and the media descends on him and his family. This effortless juxtapositon of one of history's darkest episodes with late 20th-century popular culture comes to a poignant end--with shattering results--in this haunting novel.
