“Ridiculously readable.”— Ali Rizvi, author of The Atheist Muslim
“This book is a
miracle and a blessing terrific read! Thank God Kate!” —Alexandra Petri, author of Alexandra Petri’s US History: Important American Documents (I Made Up)
“An engaging, enjoyable, and very timely book. As more and more Americans shed their religion, it is essential that the voices and values of atheists are well articulated and better understood. Cohen’s work is a warm, wonderful addition on this front.” — Phil Zuckerman, author of Living the Secular Life
“Cohen’s arguments, embedded in stories of a rich and complex life, filled with neighbors, friends, family, and fellow citizens, arrive as a wonderful and welcome invitation to join in the project of building a good life without god—a life oriented above all toward honesty, creativity, community, and joy.” — Courtney Bender, author of The New Metaphysicals
“While many popular books about atheism are written with a goal of deconverting readers, Kate Cohen takes a welcome detour in We of Little Faith. By sharing her own religious journey, Kate shows us that atheism doesn’t come from a place of rebellion, but rather a desire to embrace radical honesty. We of Little Faith is a delightful journey through both the “why” and “how” of atheism. This is a wonderful book.— Hemant Mehta, cohost of Friendly Atheist podcast
“Not all of us have PhDs in evolutionary biology or know all the philosophical arguments for or against God. Many of us just believe what we believe (or not), and should be able to talk about it. If this sounds familiar, and you’re looking for a friend to help you navigate these conversations with intelligence, compassion, and humor, you have to read this book.” — Ali Rizvi, author of The Atheist Muslim
“We of Little Faith is a must-read for every American, whether atheist or Zoroastrian or somewhere in between. Cohen’s witty, compassionate take on America’s religious culture is atheism as it should be, as it truly is: fulfilled, happy, and true to one’s self. This is the quotidian atheism your friends and family may be too timid to discuss, but which Cohen illuminates with absorbing eloquence. If you think about religion, you owe it to yourself to read this book.” — Andrew L. Seidel, author of The Founding Myth and American Crusade
“We of Little Faith is a deeply personal, often funny, and always astute look at what we stand to gain when we question not just the existence of God, but all of the ways in which our societies, cultures, traditions, and tropes assume there’s a big man in the sky. A trenchant and thoughtful read, this is the perfect book for people who are atheism-curious, and for those who are religious but open-minded.” —Jill Filipovic, CNN columnist, author of The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness
The Neppi Modona Diaries: Reading Jewish Survival through My Italian Family is the story of a Jewish family who suffered under the racial laws in Fascist Italy and went into hiding during the Nazi invasion. Told through interviews with the mother and daughter, and excepts from the (heretofore) unpublished diaries of father and son. The result is a complex, sometimes conflicting portrait of a family of survivors, as well as a meditation on the role of both Judaism and the Holocaust in the self-definition of four people–or rather five, since the author examines her own non-believing, post-Holocaust mentality as well.
“Evocative witnesses are rare. We need Kate Cohen.”–Independent Publishers
“A fascinating portrait of a family, a nation and an era that is not only an informative historical text but also a great read.”–Publishers Weekly
“Enlightening and provocative”–Susan Zuccotti, historian and author, The Italians and the Holocaust
A Walk Down the Aisle: Notes on a Modern Wedding is an exploration of the American wedding ritual told from the perspective of a bride who has no practical need for the ceremony. She and her fiancé have been living together for years; their finances are intermingled; their parents approve. At the turn of the 21st century in America, what’s to be gained from a wedding? And why do senseless traditions–some ancient, some fake-ancient–exert their pull even on those who consider themselves to be, if not counter-cultural, then at least culture-questioning?
“If you are planning or have ever planned to be a bride, this book will make you think and then it will make you cry.”-–Boston Globe
“A thought-provoking study that challenges tradition even as it acknowledges its power and worth.”–Booklist
“A poignant memoir of a modern, educated, cohabitating couple’s decision to marry.”–Library Journal
