The Little Yiddish I Know I Learned From My Grandmother: A Memoir

David Stevens is a retired professor and attorney. This Memoir is a compilation of his blogs from 2009 to 2021. While not a complete autobiography, it presents a coherent picture of his life and family. As a secular Jew turned atheist, Stevens participates in both the alienation and integration of his people. While he could be said to have participated in the American Dream, rising from the working poor to the upper middle class through education, he also feels elements of an American nightmare, having been affected by alcoholism and domestic abuse. From the title essay: "My maternal grandmother, Etta Felger Brock, was born in Ukraine in 1905. Over the next ten years her entire family emigrated to America, eventually settling in Milwaukee. Her father, David Felger, went first alone in 1910. Etta's older sisters Fannie and Rose went next in 1913. In 1914 her mother Sylvia Stelnick Felger followed with Etta, her younger sister Katie, and her younger brother Morey (Moishe). They spoke mostly Yiddish at home, although they naturally spoke Ukrainian. They were close enough to Poland that they spoke fluent Polish as well. For political reasons they felt it wise also to speak Russian. In the long run it was a very good thing they left when they did; following World War II there were no Jews left alive in their village (Ustylúh), including the relatives who died because they would not or could not leave. In my imagination it looks like the end of 'Fiddler on the Roof', although I doubt there was any musical accompaniment or any turntable."

Wrong turns, humiliating flops, painful heartbreaks—and happiness? Yes, believe it or not, they can go hand in hand. Blogger and author Mandy Hale, affectionately known as “The Single Woman” to her half-million social-media followers, is living an adventurous life that proves even our lowest lows and messiest mess-ups can point us toward our joy-filled destiny as single women. In I’ve Never Been To Vegas, But My Luggage Has, Mandy delivers heart-to-heart, often hilarious stories from a life filled with love and loss, glamour and goose bumps, faith and friendship, big dreams and battle scars. She shares the bittersweet euphoria of her high-school romance, the panic-stricken cluelessness of her first day on a stressful job, and the foot-in-mouth horror of her red-carpet interview with a music legend. Along the way, Mandy dollops personal anecdotes with encouraging insights. From thrilling first kisses to crushing break-ups, from soaring career milestones to promising flights that never quite got off the ground, she unfolds in often uproarious detail the zigzags along the path toward a pinnacle moment: sharing a table and a pinch-me-I’m-dreaming conversation with her lifelong hero. In the end, Mandy turns Sin City’s infamous marketing slogan on its head: What happens in her life doesn’t stay in her life. She shares even her darkest moments in witty, winsome ways that make us not only feel her pain, but also laugh with her and apply her hard-won nuggets of inspiration to our own lives. “Happily Ever After” might not look or feel quite like what we expect, but as Mandy is discovering—and as we can discover along with her—it is well within our reach.

In the middle of the quarantine for COVID-19 after reading one memoir after another Joshua Murphy Dobbs found the inspiration to write his own memoir. Like many others with nothing but time on his hands while out of work his story unfolded in rapid succession in just eight days. His psychiatrist asked him if he was manic after he shared the news that he had just written an entire book since his last Telehealth appointment with her. The book travels through his childhood of finding out he was biracial to a diagnosis of bipolar 1 while in a psych ward in the Army. His struggles to find the right mix of medications would land him in jail more than once. The story follows his life giving the reader hope. Even though the story follows his life as closely as it can, being a bipolar writer weaves the reader in and out of his life on a roller coaster. In the end his tattoos remind him of who he will become.
