Pressestimmen

One of O magazine's "10 Titles to Pick Up Now"

“Deborah Feldman was raised in an insular, oppressive world where she was taught that, as a woman, she wasn’t capable of independent thought. But she found the pluck and determination needed to make the break from that world and has written a brave, riveting account of her journey. Unorthodox is harrowing, yet triumphant.”—Jeannette Walls, #1 bestselling author of The Glass Castle and Half Broke Horses

“[Feldman’s] matter-of-fact style masks some penetrating insights.”—The New York Times

“An unprecedented view into a Hasidic community that few outsiders ever experience. . . . Unorthodox reminds us that there are religious communities in the United States that restrict young women to marriage and motherhood. These women are expected to be obedient to their community and religion, without question or complaint, no matter the price.”Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Riveting . . . extraordinary.”—Marie Claire

“Eloquent, appealing, and just emotional enough . . . No doubt girls all over Brooklyn are buying this book, hiding it under their mattresses, reading it after lights out—and contemplating, perhaps for the first time, their own escape.”—HuffingtonPost.com

“Deborah Feldman has stripped the cloak off the insular Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism, offering outsiders a rare glimpse into the ultraconservative world in which she was raised.”Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“Compulsively readable, Unorthodox relates a unique coming-of-age story that manages to speak personally to anyone who has ever felt like an outsider in her own life. Feldman bravely lays her soul bare, unflinchingly sharing intimate thoughts and ideas unthinkable within the deeply religious existence of the Satmars. . . . Teens will devour this candid, detailed memoir of an insular way of life so unlike that of the surrounding society.”—School Library Journal

“[Feldman’s] no-holds-barred memoir bookstores on February 14th. And it’s not exactly a Valentine to the insular world of shtreimels, sheitels and shtiebels. Instead, [Unorthodox] describes an oppressive community in which secular education is minimal, outsiders are feared and disdained, English-language books are forbidden, mental illness is left untreated, abuse and other crimes go unreported . . . a surprisingly moving, well-written and vivid coming-of-age tale.”The Jewish Week

“Imagine Frank McCourt as a Jewish virgin, and you've got Unorthodox in a nutshell . . . a sensitive and memorable coming-of-age story.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“[Deborah Feldman's] is an extraordinary story of struggle and dream. . . . Both her escape and her decision to tell her story are magnificent acts of courage.”—Anouk Markovits, author of I Am Forbidden

“Unorthodox is a fascinating book . . . Feldman’s voice resonates throughout.”The Jewish Daily Forward

“Denied every kind of nourishment except the doughy, shimmering plates of food obsessively produced by her Holocaust-survivor grandmother . . . books nourish [Feldman’s] spirit and put in her hands the liberatory power of storytelling. As she becomes a reader and then a writer, Feldman reinvents herself as a human being.”Newsday (New York)

Unorthodoz is painfully good. . . .Unlike so many other authors who have left Orthodoxy and written about it, [Feldman’s] heart is not hardened by hatred, and her spirit is wounded but intact. . . . She is a sensitive and talented writer.”—JewishJournal.com

Unorthodox is consistently engaging. And the very fact of it is touching. For years . . . [Feldman] examined library shelves, marveling that there were so many men and women who believed in their ‘innate right . . . to speak their mind in whatever way they saw fit.’ That she has joined their ranks is remarkable indeed.”—BarnesandNobleReview.com

“Feldman gives us special insight into a closed and repressive world. . . . Her memoir is fresh and tart and utterly absorbing.”Library Journal

“Nicely written . . . [An] engaging and at times gripping insight into Brooklyn's Hasidic community.”Publishers Weekly

“A remarkable tale.”Kirkus Reviews

“Feldman’s evolution as well as her look inside a closed community make for fascinating reading … her storyteller’s sense and a keen eye for details give readers a you-are-there sense of what it is like to be different when everyone else is the same.”Booklist

4.0 von 5 Sternen Truly scandalous 31. Januar 2014
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a very insightful memoir that raises mixed feelings. It is written with passion and portrays the way of life of the Hasidic Satmar community in New York in ways that I did not know before. It also gives one a better understanding of Hasidim Judaism not only in America, but in Israel and Eastern Europe where it originated. I did further research after reading this novel, so I applaud it for piquing my curiosity. This book might not be considered by some people as a masterpiece, but it certainly is the best I have read so far on the subject. Like Disciples of Fortune, it touched an aspect of Judaism many people are hazy about, or even consider mysterious. I hope books like this come out telling the word about other mysterious sects and practices found in the different religions. The world needs it, especially in our times.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Von ultraorthodox zu unorthodox 10. März 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Deborah Feldman erzählt in diesem Buch von ihrer Kindheit und Jugend unter den Satmar-Chassidim in Williamsburg, im New Yorker Stadtteil Brooklyn. Das Leben in dieser ultraorthodoxen Gruppe ist von der genauen Befolgung der religiösen Gebote, der Unterdrückung alles Sexuellen und einer strickten Geschlechtertrennung geprägt. Sekuläre Bildung wird als Gefahr angesehen und wird in der Schule nur so weit vermittelt, wie es von staatlicher Seite vorgeschrieben ist. Nach einer frühen Heirat, dem Umzug in einen Ort, in dem die soziale Kontrolle nicht so extrem ist, und dem Ende ihrer unglücklichen Ehe gelang es Deborah Feldman schließlich, mit ihrem Sohn die Gemeinschaft zu verlassen und ein eigenes Leben aufzubauen.
Das Buch ist spannend geschrieben und gibt Einblicke in eine Gemeinschaft und eine Lebensweise, die man sonst kaum erhält.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mutig! 30. Dezember 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das muss man erst mal schaffen: Sich aus einer extrem verschlossenen Gemeinschaft lösen und seinen eigenen Weg finden, wirklich bemerkenswert. Das Buch ist spannend, wenn auch in sehr einfachen Worten geschrieben. Man erhält beim Lesen einen Blick in eine ganz andere Welt und kann sich nicht vorstellen, dass diese parallel exisitieren kann.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written, interesting, and touching memoir 24. Februar 2012
Von KrankyKat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Last year I caught a documentary about Williamsburg in New York City and Ms. Feldman was one of the people interviewed and presented. She grew up in a Hasidic community and left it in her early 20s. Since I am very interested in memoirs and fiction that deal with the process of breaking out of fundamentalist religious communities, I was looking forward to the publication of this memoir. It was worth the wait. The book held me captivated from the first pages.

First of all, Feldman tells a very interesting story. While she illustrates all of the restrictions that she had to live with every day of her life - and they are rather incredible for anybody not living in such a community - she never really speaks in a mean or disrespectful manner about the people she grew up with. In fact, she tries to understand where they are coming from and to see the good things her family gave her.

Yet she does not shy away from difficult topics. She talks about her mother who left her little daughter behind as she herself flew from the community and about her father who seems to have cognitive problems. She relates how this situation led to her being treated differently from other children and how she always felt like an outsider in her own community.

I imagine it can't be easy writing about these things. Yet Feldman digs even deeper into the stuff that nobody in this Hasidic community really wants to talk about: the sexual problems she and her husband encountered, which were mostly caused by the extreme sexual repression and, more precisely, the negative view of feminine sexuality in this community. I find her very open and courageous when she relates these issues.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An easy and quick read 20. Januar 2013
Von pb2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It is an interesting in-sight in a very closed society. It is an easy and quick read. The ending of the book is written it seems rather quickly and could have offerd more reflection on the author.
