Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Matthue Roth's inspired and insightful tale of a punk-rock Orthodox Jew who goes to Hollywood to find her place.

Don't think for a second that you know Hava or her place in the world. Yes, she's an Orthodox Jew. But that doesn't mean she can't rock out. And yes, she has opinions about everything around her. But her opinions about herself can be twice as harsh.

Now Hava's just been asked to be the token Jew on a TV show about a Jewish family, trading one insular community for another. As in Tanuja Desai Hidier's BORN CONFUSED, there is soon a collision of both cultures and desires — with one headstrong heroine caught in the middle.

Synopsis:

Hava is an Orthodox Jew, but that doesn't mean she can't rock out. And yes, she has opinions about everything around her. Now Hava's just been asked to be the token Jew on a TV show about a Jewish family, trading one insular community for another.

Synopsis:

Although an Orthodox Jew, Hava finds it difficult to live the structured life her family wants for her and the rock life she desires and so decides to use an unexpected opportunity to set the record straight when she gets invited to be on a television show to talk about her role as the daughter of a Jewish family. Reprint.
