"...An introductory plunge into more profound racial consciousness..." - Kirkus Reviews
Jews, the Confederacy, Race, the South & Me
A travel-through-history memoir of a partially southernized Yankee's journey through the Deep South, Wandering Dixie explores the lost Jewish communities of the South and uses those experiences as the fulcrum around which to examine southern culture, race, and American history.
“In stunningly elegant prose, Eisenfeld uncovers the anonymous corners of Jewish and Confederate history. In this immersive gem of a book, she inspires hope for a nuanced and vital conversation about race by claiming her own role in ‘our troubled American story.’” —Michelle Brafman, author of Washing the Dead
“Beautifully written and highly thoughtful, Wandering Dixie takes us on a powerful journey through the physical and internal landscapes of the South. Eisenfeld confronts religion, race, and reckoning, revealing the powerful vectors in our lives that push us into the unexpected.” —Randon Billings Noble, author of Be with Me Always
