“My whole life I felt like God’s bitch.”
Such is the first line of Susan Silverman’s 2016 memoir, Casting Lots: Creating a Family in a Beautiful, Broken World.
Silverman (sister of comedian Sarah) was born to two atheist parents. So it came as quite the shock when she decided to become a rabbi as a young adult. Silverman went on to create a sprawling family, ultimately having three daughters and adopting two sons. Her resulting memoir delves into the deeper meanings of family, faith, and identity.
“Devoted to family, faith, and her partnership with God, Silverman paints an honest portrait of an imperfect but loving household. Readers of many traditions will enjoy Silverman’s tender adoption story,” said Publishers Weekly. Kirkus Reviews calls it “a book rich in understanding and humor.”
