As in Eden

Publisher: Faber and Faber

Using stories from the Bible as her starting point, Lamming breathes life into its female characters who have been condemned to live in the shadows of their male counterparts until now.

She skilfully rewrites the ancient stories, laying bare the predicaments of Eve, Claudia Procula and Martha, amongst others, with great compassion and insight.
