“Other people’s passions are as hard to fathom as their dreams,” Karen muses. A mother yearning for security and happiness in a second marriage, she has no idea that her loving husband, a successful scientist working on climate change, is molesting the pre-teen girls on the swim team he coaches. Spencer’s feelings for “his girls” develop into an obsession as he is increasingly provoked by Karen’s son Sammy, a college student defending himself against a charge of date rape.

With tenderness and wry humor, these fourteen well-observed stories offer a memoir of our times—an intimate perspective on the social transformations of the mid-to-late twentieth century. This is a vivid and even-handed memoir of a Bohemian “red-diaper” childhood in 1950’s California, a rebellious coming-of-age in the earliest days of the Grateful Dead and an Ivy League education gone sour.

Ruhama Veltfort’s exhilerating debut novel delves into the nature of will and of faith, telling the story of a modern exodus that echoes the American quest for spiritual fulfillment. What begins as a search for a better life by a group of Jewish immigrants in the mid 1800s becomes the embodiment of the longing—physical, familiar, and spiritual—we all feel for a home.
