Gary S, a non-fiction reviewer on this blog, alerted me to a book review that was recently posted in the Wall Street Journal. Jujitsu Rabbi and the Godless Blonde by former Daily Beast journalist, Rebecca Dana is a title that makes you stop in your tracks, and yes, possibly go, huh??

This is a witty memoir that details how a not very observant Jewish girl ends up with a rabbi (and martial arts student) for a roommate in the heart of Brooklyn's super orthodox community.

Promos and reviews have been mostly positive for this edgy  memoir although the Wall Street Journal thought it would make a "good summer flick".  (Not sure about that comment.....) 

For anyone who's moved to a new city in search of a dream, lost your way and possibly rebounded, you'll have an appreciation for Rebecca Dana's adventure... (or misadventure).

One reviewer aptly stated "This book has a very young feel to it. Dana is willing to laugh at herself and see the humor in her missteps and mishaps, and this has aided her in her success"
