Finalist, 2015 National Jewish Book Award Honorable Mention, Sophie Brody Medal, American Library Association One of the Jewish Book Council's "15 fiction books that shaped Jewish literature in 2015" "Eve considers motherhood. Miriam tends Moses. Lot s wife looks back. " Vividly reimagined with startling contemporary clarity, Michal Lemberger s debut collection of short stories gives voice to silent, oft-marginalized biblical women: their ambitions, their love for their children, their values, their tremendous struggles and challenges. Informed by Lemberger s deep knowledge of the Bible, each of these nine stories story recasts a biblical saga from the perspective of a pivotal woman. Michal Lemberger s nonfiction and journalism have appeared in "Slate," "Salon," "Tablet," and other publications, and her poetry has been published in a number of print and online journals. A story from "After Abel," her first collection of fiction, was featured in "Lilith Magazine." Lemberger holds an MA and Ph D in English from UCLA and a BA in English and religion from Barnard College. She has taught the Hebrew Bible as Literature at UCLA and the American Jewish University. She was born and raised in New York and now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two daughters. Original and thought-provoking.
