Description
Meet Naamah, Noah's wife, the matriarch who kept her family alive as they drifted on an endless sea. Here is a woman torn between faith and fury, lending her strength to her sons and their wives, caring for an unruly menagerie of restless creatures, silently mourning the lover she left behind. In fresh and modern language, Blake revisits the story of the Ark that rescued life on earth, and rediscovers the agonising burdens endured by the woman at the heart of the story. Naamah is a parable for our time: a provocative fable of body, spirit, and resilience.

display_description With the coming of the Great Flood - the mother of all disasters - only one family is spared, left drifing on the endless waters, waiting for them to subside. We know the story of Noah, moved by divine word to build an ark and launch an escape. Now, in a work of astounding invention, Sarah Blake reclaims the story of his wife, Naamah, the matriarch who kept them alive. Here is the woman torn between faith and fury, lending her strength to her sons and their wives, caring for an unruly menagerie of restless creatures while silently mourning the lover she left behind. Here is the woman escaping into the unreceded waters, where a seductive angel tempts her to join a strange and haunted world. Here is the woman tormented by dreams and questions of her own - questions of devotion and self-determination, of history and memory, of the kindness or cruelty of fate.
