Joshua Eubanks and Paul Sims moved to Crown Heights, Brooklyn,
for very different reasons. Joshua, a young black man, came with his
single mother to escape the crime and despair of Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Paul left his life of privilege in Long Island to study Judaism with the
Hasidic Lubavitch movement.
They live in two different
worlds separated by a few city blocks, but their hearts both yearn for
Rachel Weissman, the daughter of a respected rabbi, who is torn between
her aspiration to become a doctor and her obligation to obey the insular
restrictions of her religion. As they establish lives in their
respective communities, they are increasingly expected to take sides in
growing tensions that would explode into the 1991 Crown Heights
riots.
Joshua: A Brooklyn Tale views four decades through
three lives. Andrew Kane’s novel is a love story about
loneliness, a reflection on the value of community that acknowledges
that it takes a village to raise a mob, a tale of public dysfunction and
personal demons, and an image of the frail beauty of humanity that
somehow survives.
