“Sonia Taitz has a good heart, a brave mouth, and an unmortgaged soul. Follow where she leads. You want to go there.” -John Patrick Shanley, Pulitzer, Tony, and Academy Award-Winning author of Moonstruck and Doubt
“Heartwrenching, moving, and yes, hilarious, Taitz’s extraordinary memoir explores culture clash, Jewish roots, and the struggle to break the bonds of the past and forge your own kind of Promised Land future. But it’s also an astonishing love letter to Taitz’s Holocaust survivor parents, one that’s so fiercely tender and gorgeously written, that each page seems like a revelation.”
Boston Globe book critic and NEW YORK TIMES Best-selling author of Pictures of You
“A heartbreaking memoir of healing power and redeeming devotion, Sonia Taitz’s The Watchmaker’s Daughter has the dovish beauty and levitating spirit of a psalm…a past is here reborn and tenderly restored with the absorption of a daughter with a final duty to perform, a last act of fidelity.”
New Yorker and Vanity Fair cultural critic, and author of the memoir Lucking Out
"An invigorating memoir about coming of age as the daughter of Lithuanian Jewish immigrants and Holocaust survivors...An affecting, brisk read, especially noteworthy for its essential optimism and accomplished turns of phrase."
