Nash, Edith / Practice the here and now: selected writings of Edith Nash
At the Hemingways, pp. 11-12
12 "We don't go by those rules at our house." "Why not?" "We just don't. We aren't part of the Jewish religion. I used to go to the Unitarian Sunday School. Now I go to the Congregational Church with your family." "Why?" "Because your sister is my best friend." "Oh... What would you do if you had a helping of canned beans on your plate and you could just see a teeny, tiny sliver of pork in it?" "I would eat it." I sat at the Hemingway table, smelled the good smells of Dr. Hemingway's "hockies" and wondered what country I had come from and where I belonged.
