Six absorbing new memoirs

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Melissa Albert tagged six top new memoirs, including:
Exodus, by Deborah Feldman

In 2012′s Unorthodox, Feldman broke free of the strict Hasidic community she’d been raised in, and that had engineered the loveless marriage she could no longer abide. Exodus finds her foundering as an outcast, trading her native Brooklyn for the country, and searching for herself in a world where she’s only ever been identified by her community. This tale of self-actualization against all odds will make for an inspiring summer read.
