Himsel’s seemingly impossible road from childhood cult to a committed Jewish life is traced in and around the major events of the 1970s and 80s with warmth, humor, and a multitude of religious and philosophical insights. A River Could Be a Tree is a fascinating story of struggle, doubt, and finally. Personal fulfillment. Himsel is a freelance writer based in New York. She has an MFA in creative writing from The City College in New York
