OUT OF THE GARDEN: Women Writers on the Bible.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
New York: Fawcett Columbine, (1984). First edition - A collection of essays in which "women read and respond to the Bible out of pleasure and curiosity . . Drawing on their own epxeriences and interests, Louise Erdrich, Cynthia Ozick, Fay Weldon, Phyllis Trible, Rebecca Goldstein, June Jordan, Ursula Le Guin, and twenty-one other writers boldly imaginatively - and sometimes reproachfully - address the Old Testament stories, characters, and poetry that mean the most to them." Among the other contributors are Marina Warner, Rachel M. Brownstein, Amy Clampitt, Allegra Goodman and more. Notes, contributors' biographies. xiv, 350 pp.
Condition: Very good in glossy illustrated wrappers (a binding flaw which resulted in crinkling to several pages, back cover).
