When a media-celebrity-turned-tyrant ascends to prominence, he brings about the apocalyptic destruction of our world. Only an elite class of the human race is able to escape the catastrophic effects on our planet, fleeing to a pseudo-life on a space-station, where their individuality and sexuality are strictly regulated by the fascist regime. Within this societal pressure, a movement is born in which heroes burn and bodies become the ultimate artistic canvas. Lidia Yuknavitch depicts a world that is both uniquely alien and terrifyingly close to home in this phenomenal re-imagining of the Joan of Arc story.
