The Crystal Den

Front Cover
Oberon Books, 2002 - Drama - 82 pages
The life-crisis of Karl Marx's third daughter, Eleanor, reveals the dark secrets of her family. She has friends to help her: Olive Schreiner, the maverick South African-born feminist; and Israel Zangwill, 'the Jewish Dickens', famous for daring to write about London's ghetto life, who collaborates with Eleanor to write a play for their friends. The revelation of the shocking family past, and of her own partner's betrayal, tests to the limit Eleanor's new-found sense of identity as a spiritual Jew.
