Description:

ANew York TimesBestseller nbsp; A decade after the publication of this hugely popular international bestseller, Picador releases the tenth anniversary edition ofThe Red Tent. nbsp; Her name is Dinah. In the Bible, her life is only hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the more familiar chapters of the Book of Genesis that tell of her father, Jacob, and his twelve sons. nbsp; Told in Dinah's voice, Anita Diamant imagines the traditions and turmoils of ancient womanhood--the world of the red tent. It begins with the story of the mothers--Leah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Bilhah--the four wives of Jacob. They love Dinah and give her gifts that sustain her through childhood, a calling to midwifery, and a new home in a foreign land. Dinah's story reaches out from a remarkable period of early history and creates an intimate connection with the past. nbsp; Deeply affecting,The Red Tentcombines rich storytelling with a valuable achievement in modern fiction: a new view of biblical women's lives.
