"Every year, poet and novelist Marge Piercy creates her own Passover seder with a group of family and friends.
Babies have been born and grown up, friends have moved or divorced, but the principals continue to gather in her rustic Cape Cod home to participate in a seder that Piercy takes joy in tweaking each spring to make it more meaningful.
In this journey through the ritual, Piercy coaxes us toward 'a significant contemporary interpretation, rather than an emphasis on what is strictly 'correct' or traditional.'
It is in that spirit - no question too simple - that Piercy welcomes readers to her kind of seder:
a homemade and personal affair, the kind we all wish we could attend.
This charming and instructive book of Passover wisdom, brimming with favorite dishes and Marge Piercy's own moving Passover poems and blessings,
invites us to look at an important Jewish ritual in a whole new way."
