Sunday in Sodom

By Jordan Tannahill

In the Bible, she goes unnamed, known only as Lot’s Wife: the impertinent woman who was turned to a pillar of salt for looking back to behold God’s destruction of her hometown. In Sunday in Sodom, Edith recounts how her husband Lot welcomed two visitors into their house and the destruction that followed.
