The scope of the work stretches from the ancient to the modern, but it has a consistent leitmotif: the delighted laughter of the matriarch Sarah in the book of Genesis, when she gives birth to her son Isaac.

This laughter is heard first through biblical commentaries, then through twentieth-century theorists of laughter- finally, contemporary feminist theorists are used to help realize the radical openness of the laughter of delight.
