Set in the 1940's and 50's , Saving Myself: A Los Angeles Childhood evokes the wonder and terror of the Simonoff family in a small section of Los Angeles. It is told from the viewpoint of a young girl trying to understand the early loss of her Mother as well as an abandonment by her friends because she is Jewish. The memoir comes full swing in a journey toward spiritual wholeness, expressing the universal wish for a sense of belonging.

"Poignant, charming, brimming over with observation, vitality and the will to survive." Kathleen Spivack, Poet, Pulitzer Prize nominee.
