The Book of Joan is a savage love letter to the human race. In this seemingly prescient, post-apocalyptic tale, a cruel ex-talk show host controls the (upper) world world while a Kali-esque Joan (of Arc) lives beneath scorched earth. Christine, who lives in the upper world, inscribes Joan story on her pale body, and when the two women meet, change happens. Give this gorgeously-written speculative novel a read. You'll be transported.
