Celebrated for her travel memoir Dinner with Persephone: Travels in Greece and an admirable poet as well, Storace has emerged after 15 quiet years with a distinctive new book that recasts the Old Testament from the perspective of its female protagonists, though don't think The Red Tent. Storace takes a supremely mythopoetic approach, opening with Eve indignant at how incidents in the Garden of Eden were misrepresented. Explaining that there are more things in heaven than dreamt of in our philosophy, Eve shows us four unknown constellations—a knife, a cooking vessel, a paradise garden, and a pair of lovers—and their deep significance to women. Much anticipated in literary circles.
