The Book of Separation

The Book of SeparationThe Book of Separation by Tova Mirvis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book unfolds slowly like a blossoming flower as the narrator and memoirist, Tova Mirvis, describes what to her at the time felt like a chaotic unraveling at worst, a no-rope bare-hands mountain-climb at best. She contrasts her orthodox life, tightly controlled from within as well as without, with the slow journey towards what seems to the reader an average life, but that to her, was an end, everything “falling apart,” except of course, it wasn’t.
