“An award-winning poet offers a dreamy and transgressive feminist retelling of the Great Flood from the perspective of Noah’s wife as she wrestles with the mysterious metaphysics of womanhood at the end of the world.” —O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE

“Historical and mythical women . . . are getting due reconsideration in pop culture. Sarah Blake does something similar with the story of Noah’s Ark, reconstructing that well-known tale around the woman by Noah’s side” —ELLE

“The book is a testament to the idea that more than one sex, more than one idea and more than one individual makes the world in all its glory and tragedy.” THE WASHINGTON POST

“Comprised of mesmerizing prose poem-esque sections, the novel explores themes of sexuality, purpose, loss, love, and faith. A poetic debut of biblical proportions.” KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review

“Blake creates a for-adults-only multidimensional portrait of Noah’s wife by combining biblical narrative with modern prose, fantasy with realism, spirituality with erotica. . . . A remarkable feat of imagination.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“Blake’s prose is bewitching, and this narrative is an essential correction to the Bible’s male-dominated mythology. Women have always been central to these stories, but it is through storytellers like Blake that they are finally allowed to take their rightful place.”NYLON

“In a stunning, feminist retelling of Noah’s Ark, Blake’s debut novel focuses on Naamah (Noah’s wife) and their family in the year after the Great Flood. Full of desire, fury, strength, and wavering faith, Naamah becomes the bedrock on which the Earth is rebuilt upon.” THE MILLIONS

“Blake provides insights both unique and moving, and makes an ancient tale feel vibrant and relevant to today.” —JEWISH BOOK COUNCIL

“Blake’s tale is a powerful exploration of the trauma of change and the reckoning required to move on from unimaginable loss.” —BOOKLIST
