Summary
A provocative assessment of the controversial playwright challenges the opinions of her detractors while exploring contradictions in her character, from her non-practice of Judaism and her impassioned but nonpartisan political views to her sexual freedom in spite of a scorn for the women's movement and her writing of memoirs that repeatedly questioned the authenticity of memory
