The Chosen Chapter 5
Reuven puts on his new replacement glasses and is able to see the world anew, with its clear colors and bright lights. He and his father take a cab home from the hospital to their brownstone row house in Brooklyn, where their Russian housekeeper, Manya, has prepared a welcome home feast. Mr. Malter immediately goes into his study, coughing and stating that he must finish his article. Reuven can hardly believe that he has been gone for only a week and is excited about Danny's visit the next day.
