"...I felt suddenly that there was a ceremonial significance in the meal we shared. And I realized that perhaps Passover is not so much about the moment in which we break our bonds, but about what follows: the long, slow haul toward a new future."

Read an Excerpt from her book:
“A few days ago, I spent almost an hour trying to recondition an oscillating fan that I found in a junk pile. I’m not certain, but I think the reason it was tossed out was because it had a frightening wad of human hair wrapped around the spindle where the fan blades connect to the motor. It was disgusting and curious, and exactly the sort of thing you find on junk day in Olympia."
