Periel Aschenbrand

Video blogger Aaron Herman speaks with author Periel Aschenbrand about her new book, "On My Knees:A Memoir." Armed with her wicked wit and a motley cast of characters that includes her hovering Jewish mother, her drama queen uncle, and her neurotic best friend/wing woman.

Aschenbrand takes readers on a journey through the seventh circle of single-girl hell—crazy one night stands; an unhealthy attachment to a dental hygienist; a run-in with Phillip Roth and, in the end, a trip to Israel and an encounter with a man who helps her regain her footing and find her heart.
