Reviews

DISOBEDIENCE by hot new talent Naomi Alderman is set to spark controversy. Her debut is about two women who were teen lovers in north London's orthodox Jewish community. Move over Zadie Smith.--Elle (UK)
DISOBEDIENCE reaches beyond expose status. A loving anger feeds its critique of the UK's orthodox Jewish society, and its split narrative--which points to a culture clash as absurd as a lunch date between Moses and Sandra Bernhard--edges towards acceptance, hope and a middle ground.--Vogue (UK)
A revealing glimpse into a closed community and offers serious ethical questions to ponder. An excellent choice for women's book clubs.--Booklist
Alderman creates for the reader a well-textured image of a world that most will never experience.--Minneapolis Star-Tribune
