God’s vengeance on the wicked city of Sodom is a perennial source of fascination and horror.  Michael Arditti’s passionate and enthralling new novel explores the enduring power of the myth in five momentous epochs.   A young Judean exile transcribes the Acts of Abraham and Lot in ancient Babylon; the Guild of Salters presents a mystery play of Lot’s Wife in medieval York;   Botticelli paints the Destruction of Sodom for a court in Renaissance Florence;  a bereaved rector searches for the Cities of the Plain in nineteenth century Palestine;  a closeted gay movie star portrays Lot in a controversial biblical epic in 1980s Hollywood.
