Michael Baum, Paul Boorstin

04/03/2018 8:00 pm

Michael Baum and Paul Boorstin discuss why biblical stories remain a rich source of inspiration. Michael Baum’s novel Aaron’s Rod is a murder mystery, taking the reader on a gripping quest for an ancient artefact from the Assyrian conquest, via 20th century Hampstead, to modern day Israel. Paul Boorstin’s fiction David and the Philistine Woman tells the story of David and Goliath through the perspective of Nara, Goliath’s betrothed, in a witty and richly- embroidered narrative.
