There were parts of this book that I found irritating, and there were other parts that I found extremely moving.
The author of the explosive New York Times bestselling memoir Unorthodox (now a Netflix limited series) chronicles her continuing journey as a single mother, an independent woman, and a religious refugee. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three, Deborah Feldman walked away from the rampant oppression, abuse, and isolation of her Satmar upbringing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to forge a better life for herself and her young son.
The memory of those delightful visions returned to me in the summer of 2012, as I searched for the first place that would truly be my home and suddenly realized that those dreams weren’t so unrealistic anymore.Yet proximity to water wasn’t on the short list of requirements I presented to my broker, who specialized in the unique corner of rural New England I was scouting, an area where three states converged, yet which seemed to boast very little of each of them in terms of identity. And I thought of that saying “No man is an island” and wondered how long I’d survive without a grid of my own, and if it was even possible to rebuild one from scratch.Maybe my residual angst is actually predicated on a real experience, not just leftover trauma.
For my entire life I have occupied an enclosed mental space that no one has managed to penetrate. Download for offline reading, highlight, bookmark or take notes while you read Exodus: A Memoir. Read more like short stories than a memoir. Freedom posed an especial danger, the adage emphasized, to those who had never previously experienced it.This saying, scornfully evoked when the conversation turned to the subject of the few known rebels in our society, irritated me greatly as a child. Ask people who know me and they will confirm that in a whole manner of ways. I have grown “close” to people in the sense that we have been in each other’s proximity, but never close enough for those walls to come down.
My days were spent on asphalt, which would swell in the heat of summer and give off an acrid odor.
Since leaving, Feldman has navigated remarkable experiences: raising her son in the “real” world, finding solace and solitude in a writing career, and searching for love. It wasn’t that my aggressive maneuvering around New York traffic bothered her; it was just her way of describing, rather endearingly, my general approach to life after a reckless escape from an arranged marriage in a sheltered community.
I look at her face and know instantly, with the pain of a punch to the gut, exactly how long it’s been since there was a smile on it.I put my arm around her shoulder, ever so gently, as if she might break from the weight, and I whisper into her ear, “Everything is going to be fine.”.She turns and looks at me for the first time, her face a mask of distrust.Snap. Every evening the sun would set in magnificent colors over the water, the lake would seem stiller somehow, and the world would get very quiet. Unorthodox was so good. She feels each strand stretching from its inflamed follicle, especially at the nape of her neck, where an early-spring breeze raises goose bumps on the exposed skin. Someone writes a great first memoir. Exodus: A Memoir - Ebook written by Deborah Feldman. She is a beautiful writer and I look forward to a long literary career.Lately, when I read memoir, my main points of evaluation are "Why should I care?" E-book,Magazine,German Movie,Video Tutorial.In 2009, at the age of twenty-three, Deborah Feldman walked away from the rampant oppression, abuse, and isolation of her Satmar upbringing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to forge a better life for herself and her young son. A memoir about a woman’s loss of faith (here, that involved leaving her marriage and her Hasidic Jewish community) should be right up my street, but I had trouble connecting with Feldman’s voice. Funny, since I can’t ever remember having been securely fixed on it, and I have a niggling fear that my birth was a mistake, like a computer glitch that left me permanently disconnected, smack in the middle of a no-man’s-land between points, with no ability to form real and lasting connections.
I was hoping that some issues would be explored in greater depth, or we would at least see how Ms. Feldman was able to establish her life after leaving her community. Wherever I looked, I saw the invisible threads that connected people; every person seemed to have their grid firmly and inextricably in place.
Perhaps if she told the story ten or twenty years later with more perspective on life to draw on, it would be better.I admittedly preferred Ms. Feldman's first memoir. Does the doctor know something about my past now, something that I don’t?Never mind. Not completely, but enough for now.”.I get out of the chair, feeling dizzy and disoriented. I had read that she did some "embroidering" especially in this book, and got some flack for it. And I look forward to her next book.Powerful. This book is basically a collection of different experiences that Deborah Feldman has one she escapes from her religion. The book is actually well written, much more than the first book, and Feldman finally caught on to the modern memoir’s confessional style, so she presents herself as introspective, honest and likable. I was very interested in the parts about her upbringing and how/why she left that community.
