One of Entertainment Weekly's Most Anticipated Quarantine Reads.

"Fresh and tantalizing, with fascinating intergenerational discussions about desire, duty, family, and feminism, as well as a surprising, completely believable twist. This frank, revisionist romp through a Bible tale is a winner." —Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)

A bold, kaleidoscopic novel intertwining the lives of three women across three centuries as their stories of sex, power, and desire finally converge in the present day. From modern-day Brooklyn to ancient Persia, The Book of V., tells three characters' riveting stories that overlap and ultimately collide, illuminating how women's lives have and have not changed over thousands of years. If you loved The Hours or Fates and Furies, you'll love The Book of V.
