Jacob And Esau Burkholder


The story of Jacob and Esau, one of the great biblical portrayals of deceit and its consequences, is re-imagined in this witty, perceptive tale of conflicting characters, woven around the highlands of Tennessee and Virginia. In William Crisp’s Jacob and Esau Burkholder, Jacob tricks and dispossesses twin brother Esau of the inheritance, getting through the tough times ahead with his wit and cunning, shedding the bohemian life of his youth along the way. As Jacob ponders about his expanded family and the issue of closure with the offended brother, couples Billy and Isabel, and Sarah and Jack of Polk County, Tennessee, deal with the brothers’ impending confrontation, while trying to straighten out matters of their own mottled affairs.
