Contrasting wedding ceremonies—a lavish Imperial Hotel Shinto affair for his side, a modest Jewish wedding for hers—set the stage for a fascinating union between two spiritual seekers who raise their children in Tokyo with Jewish and Japanese roots.

This is a memoir full of scintillating conversations, memorable characters, art and syncronicity, sad endings and joyful beginnings.

Coming Home Far from Home

At Goshen Books, we spotlight contemporary memoir writers living far from their birthplace. We write about the transformations we undergo while leaping, loving, and embracing aspects of a new culture we call home. How much of the old way of life gets transported to the new? How much inner and outer change must we undergo in order to grow and strengthen ourselves, and then contribute to a foreign country? These are the questions we ask ourselves at Goshen Books.
