Deborah Feldman

was born and raised in the Hasidic community of Satmar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In 2012 she published the instant New York Times bestseller UNORTHODOX which detailed her fundamentalist upbringing and her eventual decision to abandon it. Her most recent book, titled EXODUS, is a memoir of post-religious alienation and identity. Deborah lives in New England with her son, where she is currently working on a novel, a documentary film, and a book about ethnic identity in a globalized age. Rural life suits her; no cell phone service means no stalkers.
