Rosen gives a new voice to more than a dozen women of the Bible. She imagines and writes the missing chapters of these women’s lives in a witty and engaging collection of stories. In addition, she introduces the book with a lively essay about classical Midrash, its relationship to fiction and the imagination, and the possibilities for new midrashim written for and about women.
