Praise for Lilith:
“Stellar . . . This feminist reimagining of the Bible will grip readers.” 
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A sweeping fairy tale . . . Quick and imaginative . . . An engaging feminist revision of the ancient world’s Abrahamic religions.”
Kirkus Reviews

Lilith makes The Red Tent seem tame. It is “speech that cannot be silenced”—a ferocious, heterodox mythic novel that upends notions of divinity, femininity versus masculinity, and human beings’ responsibility toward one another and the earth.”
Foreword Reviews, starred review

“Illuminating, fascinating and important—a fierce and valuable addition to feminist myth-retellings.”
—Jennifer Saint, Sunday Times bestselling author of Ariadne

“Exquisite prose brings this compelling, highly relevant tale of Adam’s first wife to life.”
—Laura Shepperson, Sunday Times bestselling author of Phaedra

“Electric and empowering.”
—Niamh Boyce, No. 1 bestselling author of Her Kind

“[A] joyous rampage through Biblical history.”
—Alice Albinia, author of Guardian Book of the Year Cwen

“A fun and thought-provoking journey . . . Daring, fresh and playful.”
—Ann Morgan, internationally bestselling author of Crossing Over

—Kathleen B. Jones, author of Cities of Women

—Joanne Burn, author of The Hemlock Cure

 “Fans of Madeline Miller and Jenny Saint will love this evocative feminist retelling.”
—Rosie Andrews, author of The Leviathan

“A primal cry echoing through the centuries.”
—Luna McNamara, author of Psyche and Eros

“Exquisitely written and full of wit and female rage.”
—Rani Selvarajah, author of Savage Beasts

“The most powerful, audacious, hopeful novel I’ve ever read.”
—Louise Morrish, author of Operation Moonlight

“One of the most gloriously feminist myth-meets-historical-fiction novels.”
—Susan C. Wilson, author of Clytemnestra’s Bind

“A sumptuous feast and furious tornado of a novel.”
—Maggie Brookes, author of Acts Of Love And War

“A rich, vividly written story of passion, betrayal and female rage.”
—Sophie Keetch, author of Morgan Is My Name

“Ambitious and intriguing, Lilith tackles patriarchy while imagining a better world for all.”

—Susan Stokes Chapman, author of Pandora
