Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots.
Deborah Feldman was raised in an insular Brooklyn Hasidic Satmar neighborhood. She was taught to believe that, as a woman, she could not live or think independently. She smuggled classic literature into her bedroom. Inspired by Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, and other writers, she began to believe that she could leave her world. This is her personal story.
