From Library Journal
In the language of cult and myth, Lilith comes down to us as "the demon of waste places who preys on males." She steals new babies from this life and provides the malevolent source of nocturnal emissions. In this eclectic mix of poetry and prose, fiction and nonfiction, editors Dame (poet and lecturer, New Jersey Inst. of Technology), Henny Wenkart (editor, Jewish Women's Literary Annual), and Lilly Rivlin (writer and filmmaker) cogitate upon who and what Lilith is. This is not a scholarly work but a stab at "contemporary midrash" (a commentary on biblical text) that targets Jewish women's reflections because "Jewish women have a need to imagine Lilith." At times radical and challenging, at others simply pedestrian, it makes its contribution more in subject matter than content, for Lilith is definitely in need of further study. Recommended for women's and Jewish studies collections.?Sandra Collins, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Lib.

The editors of this anthology, Dame, Rivlin, and Wenkart, have selected works that are wide-ranging, visionary as well as revisionist, both fierce and lyrical at the same time. Lilith circles above the pages of the volume, flies to the sea, to the desert, and invites us on this wild ride. (Esther Broner)
Indispensable...provacative essays. (Bridges)
This work proves that conjoining Lileth with feminist consciousness has opened a pwoerful chapter in the quest for re-imaging contemporary Jewish women's lives. (Na'amat Woman)
Judaism has a long tradition of reinterpreting its central texts and newer traditions of women seeking their own path. Which Lileth? adds a modern and uniquely female voice to the ancient texts and legends. (J. The Jewish News Weekly of Northern California)
Recommended for women's and Jewish studies collections. (Library Journal)
This is an amazing and wondrous work, quite equal to the task of resurrecting Lilith―one of the great female foremother archetypes, a universal vibration, and role model, if you will, one that has been buried, denied, scorned, misread, feared, by women as well as men, to our own detriment. The pieces are original, complex, very creative, poetic, filled with yearning and bravery. An deeply informative. This is a book I didn't know I needed, but now that it's here, I know she has come at the right time and in the right form. Bravo to editors Dame, Rivlin, and Wenkart. No Jewish or Women's Studies program should be without it. A must-read for theologians, ritualists, mental health professionals, Middle East experts, and, of course, for people of good will. (Dr. Phyllis Chesler)
A must-read for students of feminism, Jewish scripture, women's literature, and anyone restless for a walk on the psyche's wild side. (Woodstock Times)
Fascinating, original, and highly recommended for Judaic studies and women's studies supplemental reading lists. (The Bookwatch)

In short, she is the perfect example for the WORST kind of feminist, and in my opinion the worst kind of person, a narcissistic egomaniac filled with an irrational hatred for man and a disgusting pickiness that is insatiable.
