The Opposite of Comfortable
Sharon Nir, author
Sharon Nir, a young mother and successful businesswoman, is faced with the most difficult decision of her life: should she abandon her career and her place of birth, Tel Aviv, to follow her husband, who has been offered a once in a lifetime opportunity - a surgical fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City? In this heart-breaking and riveting memoir, Sharon not only shares her difficult move to New York City and her journey of assimilation into a different culture, but also the baffling and broken process of legal immigration into the United States, a journey that forces her to question every certitude. What does it mean to lead a full life for a woman in the 21st century? The Opposite of Comfortable seeks to answer this difficult question while celebrating the strength and resilience of the female spirit.
