Beschreibung

NOW A NETFLIX SERIES

Called "brave and riveting" by Jeannette Walls, Deborah Feldman's New York Times bestselling memoir of escaping from a strict Hasidic community includes a new afterword by the author detailing the circumstances of her life after leaving her husband and forging new beginnings for herself and her young son.

As a member of the strictly religious Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism, Deborah Feldman grew up under a code of relentlessly enforced customs governing everything from what she could wear and to whom she could speak to what she was allowed to read. Yet in spite of her repressive upbringing, Deborah grew into an independent-minded young woman whose stolen moments reading about the empowered literary characters of Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott helped her to imagine an alternative way of life among the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Trapped as a teenager in a sexually and emotionally dysfunctional marriage to a man she barely knew, the tension between Deborah's desires and her responsibilities as a good Satmar girl grew more explosive until she gave birth at nineteen and realized that, regardless of the obstacles, she would have to forge a path—for herself and her son—to happiness and freedom.

Remarkable and fascinating, this "sensitive and memorable coming-of-age story" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) is one you won't be able to put down.

"Imagine Frank McCourt as a Jewish virgin, and you've got Unorthodox in a nutshell . . . a sensitive and memorable coming-of-age story."—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ein sehr spannendes Buch! Gut geschrieben. Viele Informationen über eine Seite des Judentums, von welcher ich keine Ahnung hatte. Ich habe nicht gewusst, dass es auch bei den Juden Sekten gibt. Ich gratuliere Deborah Feldman, dass Sie such davon lösen konnte. Ich habe auch bereits das Buch Exodus gelesen.
