This astonishing novel in verse tells the story of a haunted young man hiding from the Vietnam War in the basement of a San Francisco building and translating his mother's diaries. The diaries concern the Jedwabne massacre that took place in Poland in 1941. Wildly inventive, dark, beautiful and unrelenting, The Wherewithal is a meditation on the nature of evil and the destruction of war.
