About the Author

Kitty Zeldis is the pseudonym for a novelist and non-fiction writer of books for adults and children. She lives with her family in Brooklyn, NY.

Reviews

"Drenched in rich and colorful prose, Zeldis portrays interpersonal relationships in a time and place framed in prejudice. Not Our Kind speaks to everyone, no matter what 'kind' you are." -- The Jewish Voice (Philadelphia)

"Masterfully transports readers to 1947 New York to depict the relationships that develop between a young Jewish woman and a Protestant family. . . . Lively descriptions of 1940s clothing and culture complement the realistic characters. This is a vivid, winning novel." -- Publishers Weekly

"A young Jewish teacher and a WASPy married woman find an unexpected connection in post-World War II New York. . . . A compelling tale of friendship, class, prejudice, and love." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Zeldis uses the rich details of post-war New York--the music, the clothes, the cocktails--to tell the story of two women looking for fulfillment." -- Booklist

"Let the glorious period details wash all over you--the clothes, the glamour, the excitement of New York, circa 1947. But the most remarkable achievement in NOT OUR KIND is the complex relationship between women from two different worlds that Kitty Zeldis expertly explores. The questions and prejudices that each woman has to confront are issues we are still exploring today, which makes this novel timely as well as entertaining." -- Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue and The Girls in the Picture

"Kitty Zeldis has a gift for making even the smallest details of the past shine with vivid color. The story she tells in NOT OUR KIND--of two women in post-World War II New York trying to forge lives of integrity and purpose--resonates with the struggles of women today. Compelling, frank, and all too real, NOT OUR KIND kept me reading long into the night." -- Lauren Belfer, National Jewish Book Award-winning author of And After the Fire
