Taking the age-old story of the rape of King David's only daughter by her brother Amnon as his theme, Dan Jacobson retells this Biblical tale adding new vigour and vitality. He creates a powerful and tragic novel - with a dark and underlying humour throughout to serve as a chilling reminder of the ancient lore. On first publication, The Rape of Tamar was hailed as a masterpiece.
First Avon printing, May of 1973.
