   schema:description "The Book of Judith has the clarity of Leonardo Sciascia's exploratory fictions, with, in addition, certain elements of crucial importance to Hood: the needs of the body, the awkward burden of cultural inhibition, and the different freedom of women. It is a novel which begins to make sense of the political confusions of recent decades. The search for identity, the dangers of political adventurism, and the manipulation of women are among Hood's insistent themes."@en ;
