A tiny follow-up article in the New York Post, after that vicious article this month in the same paper.
Some quotes from that article:
A gal who ditched her hubby and ultra-Orthodox Satmar community in Brooklyn left behind a trail of broken hearts and hurt feelings to pen a controversial yarn.
Deborah Feldman, 25, says she was choked by an antiquated religion and trapped in a loveless marriage — but that's news to her husband, Joel Feldman, who friends and family say is “shattered” by the damning memoir.
“She was crazy about this boy,” Feldman's uncle, Izzy Berkowitz, 58, told The Post. “She was dying to get married.
“He did everything and anything for her, but she never appreciated anything no matter what he did,” Berkowitz insisted. “She lacked happiness. Nothing was good enough for her.”
“He feels betrayed," said an old friend of the jilted pop. “She wasn't forced to marry him. They were madly in love.”
Pearl Engelman, 64, a neighbor of Feldman's when she lived in Williamsburg, blasted the author.I have to underscore that this article is fair, as it also has Deborah's side of the story... (#gallowshumor.)
“It paints the whole community in a bad light,” Engelman said. “We¶re in an uproar. We feel insulted. I think she's a lost soul.
I commend this honest reporter, Gary Buiso. He did his job as a reporter with the limited space that his editors made available for this story.
