About this author

Deborah Feldman was born and raised in the Hasidic community of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York.

Exodus, Deborah's next memoir, is due out from Blue Rider Press in March of 2014. This follow-up to Unorthodox traces her new life as an independent young woman and single mother, and her search for an authentic and personal Jewish identity.

Deborah attended Sarah Lawrence College and lives in New England with her son.
