Dan Jacobson retells the age-old, biblical story of the rape of King David's daughter by her brother Amnon. Out of this material he creates a tragic and sardonically humorous novel, wholly modern in spirit and yet true to the time in which it is set. On first publication, The Rape of Tamar was hailed as a masterpiece. "REVIEW: 'Almost a prose poem. There is an uncanny ripeness about the scene, characterisations and tempo' (Sunday Times) "REVIEW: 'Stunningly deft and economical...a novel of quite unusual depth and originality' (Observer) "REVIEW: 'An almost flawlessly written legend of malign intelligence. The Rape of Tamar is a breathtaking performance' (Newsweek) AUTHBIO: Dan Jacobson was born in South Africa in 1929.
