Just like Chaim Potok--that's me

This week I'll be blogging over at the Jewish Book Council's excellent blog, The Prosen People. The reason--the self-publication of Heresy on the High Beam: Confessions of an Unbalanced Jewess (available for purchase on Amazon. It's 2.99--cheap just like me!). Well, that and someone dropped out at the last minute and I was the frizzy haired replacement.

In this first post, I muse about how and why I decided to write a book of essays about what it means to be a grown up still obsessed with gymnastics. (It's not normal--you're supposed to outgrow it.) Also, I recall about a grad school professor who strangely compared me to Chaim Potok, paying me a compliment that remains, all these years later, in my top 5 of best compliments I've ever received. Clearly, my parents didn't tell me they loved me often enough.
