Reviews

"An important and eye-opening work for those of us who have been off the derech for ages or who are eyeing an exit ramp. The essays and memoirs reinforce each other beautifully. A true must read." -- Gary Shteyngart

"This is an impressive collection of personal narratives, conversations, and historical and sociological analysis. Its greatest strengths are the diversity of voices offered and the honesty of the contributors. I found it compelling." -- Nora L. Rubel, author of Doubting the Devout: The Ultra-Orthodox in the Jewish American Imagination
