Critical Praise

" It is tempting to say that THE RED TENT is what the Bible would be like if it had been written by women, but only Diamant could have given it such sweep and grace. "

The Boston Globe

"The oldest story of all could never seem more original, or more true. "

——James Carroll, author or An American Requiem

"Diamant succeeds admirably in depicting the lives of women in the age that engendered our civilization and our most enduring values. "

Publishers Weekly

"Diamant vividly conjures up the ancient world of caravans, shepherds, farmers, midwives, slaves, and artisans…her Dinah is a compelling narrator of a tale that has timeless resonance. "
