This memoir recounts the author’s white-knuckle escape at age seven through Poland and across Russia—the German war machine always two steps behind. Reunited in New York, she and her... More > parents settle in Manhattan but peace remains out of reach as domestic turmoil, eccentric refugee friends, Zionist summer camp and an environment of political and ideological uncertainties create a life fraught with new adversities.

A failed marriage, artistic and existential despair, and disillusionment with post-World War II American society drive her to escape again, this time to paint in Spain. But peace remains out of reach there, too, despite a love affair, a conversion to Catholicism, and efforts at religious dedication. This chronicle of Jewish escape from Europe tracks the twists and turns of that displacement, and an immigrant generation’s struggle to build a new life in America.< Less
