Review


This courageous, poignant, and truthful book will give you an experience that will never leave you. You will become wiser in the reading, shocked and compassionate as love rises to the challenge of tending to life's end.
-Jean Houston, author "The Wizard of Us"
Heartfelt and often humorous, "Bringing Bubbe Home" offers a keen and compassionate account of the love, dread, exhaustion, devotion, and revelation that come when Zaslow opens her home and her heart to her dying grandmother. With the true talent of a storyteller, Debra Zaslow takes us on a journey of self-doubt, self-discovery, and, finally, reconciliation as she explores what it means to remember . . . and to be remembered.
-Kim Barnes, author of "In the Wilderness"
Debra Zaslow offers insightful and poignant perspectives on family relationships. She has a natural ear for dialogue and captures the dynamics of taking care of an elder, her grandmother, along with taking care of the teenage children in the same home. Reading the memoir made me feel part of the entire experience!
Zaslow profoundly sums it all up near the end of her memoir, "The past and present travel with us, tracing parallel lines . . . . My roots are still tangled in Bubbe's past, the edges forever blurred." What they lived through remains in my sense memory as I traveled with Zaslow and her Bubbe. "Bringing Bubbe Home," a form of an "Ethical Will," is a beautiful tribute to her Bubbe and the wisdom learned that can be transmitted through the generations.
-Peninnah Schram, author of "Jewish Stories one Generation Tells Another"
Debra Zaslow takes us on an intimate journey, as profound as it is warm-hearted and full of nourishment for the soul. You may find yourself laughing and crying at once, and tucking away seeds of wisdom for future use.
-Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, author of "With Roots in Heaven and "The Receiving: Reclaiming Jewish Women's Wisdom"

-Kim Barnes, author of In the Wilderness

"Unable to bear seeing her Russian-born, 103-year-old grandmother die in a nursing home, Zaslow makes the decision to care for her during her final months. Bringing Bubbe Home is deeply compassionate, but unflinching. This book chronicles the realities of the body, the demands of our emotions, and the promise of the spirit. The beauty here is hard-won and authentic."
-Sue William Silverman, author of Love Sick

-Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, author of With Roots in Heaven and The Receiving: Reclaiming Jewish Women's Wisdom

Bringing Bubbe Home, is full of wisdom, humor, love, and the reality and comfort of family. I loved everything about it.
-Ruth Bell Alexander, co-author of Our Bodies Ourselves, principal author of Changing Bodies, Changing Minds

This book presents a raw, loving, intimate glimpse into the world of critical home caregiving. Swirling through the experience are dense layers of family dynamics, memories, and traumas reaching back generations. Debra Gordon Zaslow, is courageous, conflicted, caring, loving, joyful, and exhausted. Readers will be drawn into the world of personal caregiving and its ramifications upon all our lives.

Bringing Bubbe Home offers insightful and poignant perspectives on family relationships as the author captures the dynamics of taking care of an elder, while taking care of teenage children in the same home. Reading the memoir made me feel part of the entire experience. As Debra Gordon Zaslow profoundly sums it all up near the end, "The past and present travel with us, tracing parallel lines . . .

-Peninnah Schram, author of Jewish Stories one Generation Tells Another

This book becomes impossible to put down. Necessary truths and family secrets are revealed in the mature voice of a world-class storyteller. I immediately told friends to read this with the intent of a deep discussion. Bringing Bubbe Home is brilliantly confrontational, leading us to know ourselves and ask, 'Could we?' and 'Should we?'
-Rabbi Goldie Milgram, co-editor of Mitzvah Stories: Seeds for Inspiration and Learning
