After Anatevka: A Novel Inspired by "Fiddler on the Roof"

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A sweeping historical novel in the grand tradition of Russian literature that imagines what happens to the characters of Fiddler on the Roof after the curtain falls.
The world knows well the tale of Tevye, the beloved Jewish dairyman from the shtetl Anatevka of Tsarist Russia. In stories originally written by Sholem Aleichem and then made world-famous in the celebrated musical Fiddler on the Roof, Tevye, his wife Golde, and their five daughters dealt with the outside influences that were encroaching upon their humble lives. But what happened to those remarkable characters after the curtain fell?

In After Anatevka, Alexandra Silber picks up where Fiddler left off. Second-eldest daughter Hodel takes center stage as she attempts to join her Socialist-leaning fiancé Perchik to the outer reaches of a Siberian work camp. But before Hodel and Perchik can finally be together, they both face extraordinary hurdles and adversaries—both personal and political—attempting to keep them apart at all costs.

A love story set against a backdrop of some of the greatest violence in European history, After Anatevaka is a stunning conclusion to a tale that has gripped audiences around the globe for decades.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 17, 2017 – Continuing the story of Fiddler on the Roof, which was based off of the stories of Sholem Aleichem, Silber focuses her novel on one of the children of Tevye and Golde their second daughter, Hodel. Silber's admirable continuation imagines Hodel's life in two post-Fiddler periods: Hodel's courtship with and engagement to the scholarly Perchik, and her attempts years later to reunite with him after he is sent to a forced labor camp. Silber, an actress who played both Hodel and Tzeitzel in productions of the musical, imbues the book with obvious fondness for and understanding of the characters. Life in Imperial Russia around the turn of the century is not romanticized: Hodel faces trauma after trauma, including lengthy time in jail, but never stops fighting to find her beloved. Silber's novel stumbles in moments of transition between the time periods, but the moving story and attention to detail will make this an enjoyable trip for any fan of Fiddler on the Roof.
