About Names of the Women By Jeet Thayil
Names of the Women begins with Christ on the cross addressing Mary of Magdala, asking her to bear witness to his death. As the novel unfolds, it tells the stories of fifteen women whose lives overlapped with the life of Christ. Lydia and Assia, Martha and Mary of Bethany, Junia the Widow of Jerusalem, Susanna the Barren, Ariamma the Canaanite, and others whose names have been spoken only in passing or not at all. Women who stayed with Christ through the crucifixion, when his disciples had abandoned him, and who spread his radical message – one that made them equals and a profound threat to power within the church.
Together, the voices of the women dare us to reimagine the story of the New Testament in a way it has never before been told.

Names of the Women is an extraordinary work of restoration, playful invention, and stark beauty. In Jeet Thayil’s skilled telling the gospel stories, which have lasted so long, spread so far, and become so dulled by familiarity, have their deep original strangeness returned to them. — Chris Power
Original and thought-provoking . . . This is a bold and beguiling addition to the canon of New Testament fiction. — Michael Arditti ― Spectator
Theologically well-informed, imaginative and affecting . . . This is a fascinating and beautiful book. You most certainly do not have to be either a Christian or a feminist to appreciate it, and, in fact, if you are neither it might make you think twice about both. — Stuart Kelly ― Scotland on Sunday
An electrifying new treatment of the old story; haunting, mysterious, intelligent. — Tessa Hadley
