 "In her first memoir, Unorthodox, Feldman made the courageous choice to cut off ties with her family and the Satmar community of Williamsburg, Brooklyn…Now a divorced woman in her 20s, Feldman chronicles the next phase of her life in her new book [Exodus], a quest of self-discovery. Some of the most powerful scenes come when Feldman retraces the path of her female ancestors in Hungary and confronts the anti-Semitism of contemporary Europe [in] moving observations. Feldman ultimately discovers that her rightful place is wherever she happens to be."
