Debra Spark bases her novel, "Good for the Jews," on the biblical story of Esther. The story revolves around Ellen, young and involved with the school superintendent; Mose her older cousin and a teacher, and the new high school principal. The issues faced are anti-semitism, work place harassment, ageism and relationships. All of this occurs in Madison, Wisconsin. Author Spark says she was interested in exploring the idea of victims becoming victimized.
