MEDIA REVIEWS
"This informative commentary . . . dissects the Book of Esther and, by extension, the Jewish holiday of Purim. Berlin begins with a lengthy introduction, discussing Esther as comedy and as diaspora literature; the introduction does a fine job of explaining the Persian period and its various art forms."-Publishers Weekly * Publishers Weekly *
"Berlin's literary approach to the book of Esther is a very well done, and filled with important information."-David J. Zucker, Women in Judaism -- David J. Zucker * Women in Judaism *
