Synopsis: 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 PhD 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.” KIRKUS REVIEWS

Lemberger imbues her characters with a consciousness that, although taking place in ancient times, seems contemporary, because she brings such empathy to her characters It is this act of empathy that shines through . an alternative dialogue that reminds us that it is the stories that we tell that are civilization’s true heritage.” FORBES

Fresh and engaging.” PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Appeals to readers with even the most basic introduction to the Biblical canon, but especially those whose imaginations are piqued by the mystery of an untold story.” JEWISH BOOK WORLD

Reminiscent of Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent. . . . These beautifully written stories feel like meeting Eve, Lot’s wife, and many other compelling characters for the first time.” LAUREL CORONA, author of The Mapmaker’s Daughter and The Four Seasons: A Novel of Vivaldi’s Venice

Stunning.” MOLLY ANTOPOL, author of The UnAmericans

Gorgeous and captivating.” DARA HORN, author of A Guide for the Perplexed and The World to Come

Marvelous.” MICHELLE HUNEVEN, author of Off Course and Blame

What struck me most about these stories is their clear, assured confidence as if Michal Lemberger had pulled apart some of the lines in the old story, spied a new story tucked in there way off in a corner, shimmied in a fishhook and pulled it out.” AIMEE BENDER, author of The Color Master and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
