Description

  • Author of the New York Times Bestseller "Unorthodox"
  • In 2009, at the age of twenty-three, Deborah Feldman packed up her young son and their few possessions and walked away
    from her insular Hasidic roots. She was determined to forge a better life for herself, away from the rampant oppression,
    abuse, and isolation of her Satmar upbringing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Out of her experience came the incendiary,
    bestselling memoir Unorthodox, and now, just a few years later, Feldman has embarked on a triumphant journey of
    self-discovery—a journey in which she begins life anew as a single mother, an independent woman, and a religious
    refugee.

    Taking her cues from favorite childhood books read in secret and the modern classics only recently introduced to her,
    Feldman explores the United States, from San Francisco to Chicago, New Orleans, and the Southwest. In her travels, and
    at home, Feldman redefines her sense of identity—no longer Orthodox, she comes to terms with her Jewishness by
    discovering a world of like-minded outcasts and misfits committed to self-acceptance and healing. Inwardly, Feldman has
    navigated remarkable experiences: raising her son in the “real” world, finding solace and solitude in a writing career,
    and searching for love. Culminating in an unforgettable trip across Europe to retrace her grandmother’s life during the
    Holocaust, Exodus is a deeply moving exploration of the mysterious bonds that tie us to family and religion, the bonds
    we must sometimes break to find our true selves. Feldman proves herself again to be a captivating storyteller, and her
    singular life has been an inspiration to countless others and for readers everywhere.
