Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College

"The voices vary widely, from the mystical to the strident, from the autobiographical to the scholarly. Such diversity provides texture to the anthology and makes the reading experience layered and multifaceted. These essays break new ground in format and/or subject matter, bringing gendered analysis to new levels of nuance and insight."—Dr. Elizabeth Baer, author of The Golem Redux: From Prague to Post- Holocaust Fiction
