Annual Books Issue:
True Confessions

We all own private thoughts that would make for intriguing stories. But some writers are brave and determined enough to transform their personal confessions and experiences into tales for the rest of us. For our annual books issue, we dive into memoirs. Each of the authors in this issue revisited a deep emotional challenge with a fresh eye—including searching for God, switching genders, recovering from a 9/11 tragedy—and share with their readers the lessons in coping they learned along the way. Speaking of books and confessions, I hope you don’t mind a quick shameless plug for my new book I Love Mondays: and other confessions from devoted working moms (November 1st), filled with maternal confessions.

Happy Jewish New Year!
