In the author’s own words: “The Stars in their Courses is a controversial re-interpretation of the Biblical story of Jezebel, Queen of Israel, and her arch-enemy, the prophet Elijah. Religious massacres. Sexual politics. Rapacious rulers and landless laborers. The clash of empires. And, embedded throughout, a love story. The reader will enjoy a rattling good tale, and in the process absorb a greater understanding of a world that is, after all, not so different from our own.”
