First of all: If you haven't read this gorgeous Guernica essay by Lidia Yuknavitch, get on that immediately. She's one of the best literary voices on gender and sexual fluidity writing today.

She's also a tremendous novelist, and The Book of Joan is evidence: The heroine of this novel is a reimagined Joan of Arc, plunked into a modern doomsday scenario and battle between good and evil. Insightful and sometimes frighteningly relevant, this narrative also hunts for hope — and love — in the darkest of places.
