“A journey through the lives of young Eastern European Jews that’s not to be missed.”
— Kirkus Reviews (starred review).

A young American author immerses herself in modern Jewish Budapest. The twenty-one stories she shares will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you want to be your own best self.

In their own words, Hungarian participants will tell you that “Instead of emphasizing our victimhood, we should really tell another story”(Tamás Büchler)

“Maybe I am not perfect, but I am me. At least I am me.” (Devora Hurwitz).
