When her father found the washing machine crammed with everything from her sneakers to her barrettes, 12-year-old Jennifer Traig had a simple explanation: Theyd been tainted by the pork fumes emanating from the kitchen and had to be cleansed. The same fumes compelled Jennifer to wash her hands for 30 minutes before dinner. Jennifer's childhood mania was the result of her then undiagnosed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder joining forces with her Hebrew studies. While preparing for her bat mitzvah, she was introduced to an entire set of arcane laws and quickly made it her mission to follow them perfectly. Her parents nipped her religious obsession in the bud early on, but as her teen years went by, her natural tendency toward the extreme led her down different paths of adolescent agony and mortification. Years later, Jennifer remembers these scenes with candor and humor. What emerges is a portrait of a well-meaning girl and her good-natured parents, and a very funny, very sharp look back at growing up.… (mer)

Sidesplitting memoir of growing to adulthood with OCD. Surprisingly breezy and yet not insincere. ( )

Hilarious. Jennifer Traig is a woman after my own heart.

Probably closer to three stars, except it hit a couple of my favorite topics (childhood mental disorder, and the minutiae of any kind of strict religion). ( )

This is painfully booooooooring........her "scrupulosity" shows itself in the details of her writing.

My favorite quote from her rules for playing "Musical Chairs" (or where to decide where to sit in the house):
"9. Players may not sit on the floor, because this prompts your Father to yell, 'This isn't Morocco, and in this house we sit on the chairs, damnit.' To sit on the floor is to disrespect your parents. Furthermore, as your Father points out, 'If you're worried about impurity, the floor is the last place you should be sitting. As far as the pets are concerned, the floor is just one big shag-pile toilet.' "

I thought that was funny, but not too much else.....

I did learn that OCD is a central brain dysfunction and it seems to suit those OCDs with religious "scrupulosity". ( )

They had raised me to express my Jewishness by renting Woody Allen movies, not by keeping kosher and observing Shabbat.
With all the swaying, flailing, and outbursts, a Jewish congregation could easily be mistaken for a Tourette’s convention.
There are many things I like about Judaism. I like that it encourages napping and liberal consumption of saturated fats, that it requires you to wear new clothes on some holidays and to eat cheesecake on others. But what I like best is that it encourages catered affairs for middle-schoolers
