“The Book of V.”

For a different take on the Purim story, listen to author Anna Solomon about her novel, The Book of V. HBI hosted Solomon on December 2, 2020. Interweaving the story of Esther and Vashti with two modern day women: Lily, a wife and mother in contemporary Brooklyn, and Vee, a young senator’s wife in Watergate-era Washington, The Book of V. is a meditation on female power and powerlessness. It is an engrossing tale on the ways women’s lives have and have not changed over thousands of years.
