Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Transgressive, devout, poetic, bawdy, Ostriker's book executes a Jewish feminist's contradance with tradition and makes of it an ecstatic celebration". — Marilyn Hacker, poet and former editor of Kenyon Review

"The Nakedness of the Fathers belongs on the book-shelf of Jewish feminists beside Plaskow's Standing Again at Sinai". — Outlook

"Ostriker's most sustained effort to interrogate the Hebrew Bible from a feminist perspective". — Tikkun

"Alicia Ostriker combines her talents as poet, essayist, and literary critic in this witty and profound meditation on key narratives of the Hebrew Bible.... It is vital reading for anyone concerned with contemporary women's reimagining of the sacred". — Cross Currents

"All of us who are women poets, idol breakers, and revisionists ... feel a deep kinship to the work of Alicia Ostriker, and a debt as well". — Eleanor Wilner, a recipient of a MacArthur fellowship and author of Sarah's Gift

"An imaginative and spiritual dialogue with characters and narratives of the Old Testament". — Publishers Weekly
