THE RYE BREAD MARRIAGE How I Found Happiness with a Partner I'll Never Understand

by | Read by Barrie Kreinik

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Barrie Kreinik has her tongue firmly in cheek as she narrates Weissman's love story of a Jewish writer from New York and her marriage to a rye-bread-loving Latvian immigrant physicist. Kreinik emphasizes the poignance of the memoir's engaging short chapters as she delivers the story of their romantic beginnings and later conflicts--due largely to culture clashes. Kreinik's narration takes a more neutral tone as she recounts how Weissman's experiences led her to research the traumatic family history of her own Lithuanian-Jewish family and her husband's Latvian family, as well as the history of breads, rye bread in particular. Kreinik makes clear how the happy sharing of food inspires marital closeness and compassion, if not always bliss. S.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
