In an astonishing rave review in The New York Times Book Review, Jeff Vandermeer called The Book of Joan “radically new, full of maniacal invention and page-turning momentum… A rich, heady concoction, rippling with provocative ideas.” We can't help but agree. You can read about it and think you're ready, but you won't truly be prepared for the ingenuity of it once you actually read the novel. €�While delivering an entirely new world and also putting forth a powerful treatise on the way we live now, The Book of Joan is one of those dystopian novels that you can't help thinking might be too eerily real to be just fiction.” — USA Today, Best New Book Releases of April 18.
