Memoirs of a False Messiah


I am very excited to announce that my debut novel Memoirs of a False Messiah is now available on Amazon. Stay tuned for the audiobook!

Memoirs of a False Messiah by Pamela Becker

Her name is MiMi. And she is convinced it’s her God-given mission to abandon middle-class America and create a commune for like-minded women in the desert in Israel.

Told in MiMi’s voice, she describes her special relationship with God as she moves from the mixed-religion home of her early childhood to Orthodox Judaism in her teens, to the establishment and development of her cult. MiMi looks to the women in her life, in the Bible, and in other ancient texts, weaving modern and biblical dilemmas, as she shapes a truly unique place for her followers and herself. When her life and utopian community grow more turbulent and even violent, she questions her mission.

Deeply affecting, Memoirs of a False Messiah is the richly told story of one woman’s struggle to reach perfection in an imperfect world.
