FOR BOOK CLUBS AND BOOK LOVERS - ANNA SOLOMON
Each year at Purim, we tell the story of Esther, the Jewish
orphan who rose to the throne of Persia and interceded with
her husband to save her people from annihilation. Usually
framed as a Cinderella-type story, the biblical account is less
family-friendly: Esther is chosen to replace the disgraced queen
Vashti, who refused a royal command to parade naked before a
company of drunken men.
In this bold, kaleidoscopic novel, Anna Solomon interweaves
the Biblical story of Esther and Vashti with those of two other
women: Lily, a 40-something wife and mother in contemporary
Brooklyn, and Vee, a young senators wife in Watergate-era
Washington. Their stories of power, desire and sex overlap and
ultimately converge in the present day, as she reaches across
centuries to capture the timeliness and timelessness of being a
strong, passionate woman in a world governed by men. How far
weve come and yet how many of the battles look the same
Well be listening to Anna the day before the Purim holiday,
for a new and unexpected take on its history, in an engrossing,
highly readable, and darkly sexy novel.
ANNA SOLOMON is the author of Leaving Lucy Pear and The
Little Bride and a two-time winner of the Pushcart Prize. Her
short fiction and essays have appeared in The New York Times
Magazine, One Story, Slate, and more. She lives in Brooklyn.
RHEA TREGEBOV is the winner of the Nancy Richler Memorial
Prize for Fiction in 2020. She is the author of fiction, poetry and
childrens books.
