HOLY UNEXPECTED: How I Became an Unorthodox Jew (Public Affairs)
Robin Chotzinoff is the author of the autobiography HOLY UNEXPECTED: How I Became an Unorthodox Jew, PEOPLE WHO SWEAT, and PEOPLE WITH DIRTY HANDS: The Passion for Gardening. An unrepentant generalist, she writes for Organic Gardening, Food and Wine, Outside, The New York Times magazine, and other news outlets on paper and online, as long as she can find an eccentric person to profile. She vents her own opinions at peoplewithdirtyhands.com and letterstomyagent.com.
Living in Austen, Texas, makes it possible for her to play music and perform monologues in public, run a very small synagogue in her back yard (firepitminyan.com) and enjoy unlimited access to world-class tortillas and roots music. She lives with her husband, journalist Eric Dexheimer, and has two daughters, Coco and Gus.
