About the Author

Judy Brown wrote the controversial novel Hush—a finalist for the 2011 Sydney Taylor Award for outstanding book on the Jewish experience—under a pseudonym because of feared backlash from the
Chassidic world. Brown's identity has since been revealed and she has left Chassidism. She has been profiled in The New York Times Magazine and has written for the Huffington Post and the Jewish Daily Forward. She holds a master's in creative writing and lives in New York City.

What People are Saying About This

Nina Stibbe

I love books about families and this one is so warm and funny that I couldn't put it down. Judy Brown draws us into a closed world and shows how a family's love for each other transcended many obstacles. This Is Not a Love Story actually is one. --Nina Stibbe, author of Man at the Helm and Love, Nina

Leah Vincent

This extraordinary memoir is an instant classic as it explores some of the most important love stories never told. Judy Brown brilliantly melds frankness with compassion as she unfurls the secrets of her Chassidic childhood. With echoes of Scout Finch, the feisty Menuchah guides readers on an unforgettable journey of love, justice and compassion. --Leah Vincent, author of Cut Me Loose: Sin and Salvation After My Ultra-Orthodox Girlhood

Jennifer Traig

In this thoughtful and engaging memoir, Judy Brown offers a fascinating glimpse into a world, a family, a life. This is not a love story, but it is an enthralling one, and an important one. I was utterly absorbed. --Jennifer Traig, author of Devil in the Details and Well Enough Alone
