"Many memories, many myths"--this is how Wendy Doniger begins the story of her parents' origins in Europe and sharply bifurcated life in America. Recalling their contrasting attitudes toward Judaism and religion in general--and acknowledging the mythologized narratives that keep bubbling up in those recollections--Doniger tells the story of their childhoods, their unusual marriage, their life in the post-World War II Jewish enclave of Great Neck, New York, and her own complex relationship with each of them.
