Beschreibung des Verlags

"A chronicle of personal awakening...Here is a joyful, insightful, poignant, tough-minded celebration of the individual self as a swirling complexity of genetics, random chance and divine and earth-bound humor." --THE JEWISH VOICE, Wilmington, DE

"With a deceptively simple yet strong voice, Gatuskin explores and celebrates what it means to be a Jew, to be a woman, and to be a member of the human race." --ANNE BARNEY, poet

Originally illustrated with black and white reproductions of nine original collages by the author, the "Ancestral Notes" e-book edition provides links to the full-color collages as published on-line. Another added feature of the e-book: foreign words and phrases are hyperlinked to their relevant Glossary entries (first appearance only where the term is repeated in close proximity).

More praise for "Ancestral Notes":

"As I began to read this work the shade of Franz Kafka fell across my shoulder, soon to be merged with the shades of Dostoyevsky, of Sholem Aleichem, and a myriad of my own memories dancing and grieving with those of the author. As I read on I wanted to bow before the author and kiss her feet. I wanted to weep with her and her ancestors. In the next moment I wanted to laugh with her in a triumph of the spirit over grief and pain. I put on her sister's clothes, but the door to the crematorium was shut to me, for I am not worthy. No other work I have ever read has had such an effect on me." -- William J. Turner, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY
