    In this captivating memoir, Deborah Feldman takes listeners on an eye-opening journey into Orthodox Jewish culture. Raised in the suffocating world of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim, Feldman was told what to read and who she was allowed to talk to. Married off at 17, she suffered from anxiety and was shamed by an inability to please her older husband. But after giving birth to a son at age 19, Feldman realized it was time to tear up her roots and make her own path in life.

    In 2009, at the age of 23, Deborah Feldman packed up her young son and their few possessions and walked away from her insular Hasidic roots. She was determined to forge a better life for herself, away from the rampant oppression, abuse, and isolation of her Satmar upbringing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Out of her experience came the incendiary, best-selling memoir Unorthodox, and now, just a few years later, Feldman has embarked on a triumphant journey of self-discovery - a journey in which she begins life anew as a single mother, an independent woman, and a religious refugee.

    Selten hat eine Autorin ihre Befreiung aus den Fesseln religiöser Extremisten so lebensnah, so ehrlich, so analytisch klug erzählt wie Deborah Feldman. Feldman wuchs in der ultra-orthodoxen, chassidischen Satmar-Gemeinde in Williamsburg, einem Stadtteil von New York, auf. Schon als Kind störte sie die strikte Unterwerfung unter die strengen Lebensgesetze der Sekte, die Ausgrenzung, die ärmliche Lebensweise und die Unterordnung der Frau.
