    Considered by many as Lithuania’s most important work of modernist fiction, ‘White Shroud’ draws heavily on the author’s own refugee and immigrant experience to tell the story of an émigré poet working as an elevator operator in a large New York hotel during the mid-1950s. Via multiple narrative voices and streams, the novel moves through sharply contrasting settings and stages in the narrator’s life in Lithuania before and during WWII, returning always to New York and his struggle to adapt to a completely different, and indifferent, modern world.
