Product Details

Praise

Complex and heart-wrenchingly compelling. –Caroline Leavitt, Boston Globe

“Winston . . . builds fascinating case studies, inviting readers into her interviewees’ conflicted, and often painful, lives . . . show[ing] us a Hasidic underworld where large families and a lack of secular education have resulted in extreme poverty and some serious at-risk behavior among youth. Her story of courage and intellectual rebellion will inspire anyone who has ever felt like a religious outcast.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Good for Hasidim, non-Hasidim and every reader who responds to one of the oldest plots on Earth-the need of some people to leave the community that raised them, and figure out the world for themselves.” –Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer

“Dives fearlessly into a fascinating topic . . . Winston channels the exhilaration of her subjects’ newfound freedom, without losing all compassion for the disappointed—even angry—community they are leaving behind.”–Holly Lebowitz Rossi, Dallas Morning News
