The Book of Joan Lidia Yuknavitch
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
MELISSA RIVERS is an Ivy League graduate, co-creator of the Red Carpet franchise, and the executive producer for the E! Entertainment series Fashion Police. In the near future, world wars have transformed the earth into a battleground. A geocatastrophe has swallowed coasts and islands; supervolcanoes and solar storms have dimmed the sun and reduced the planet to “a dirt clod, floating in space.” The wealthiest of Earth's inhabitants now live in CIEL, “a suborbital complex” floating just in view of their former planetary home. The Book of Joan opens with an epigraph from Doris Lessing: “We are all creatures of the stars”. Fleeing the unending violence and the planet's now-radioactive surface, humans have regrouped to a mysterious platform known as CIEL, hovering over their erstwhile home. A history of iconizations of Joan of Arc, from religious to neoliberal to ecofeminist:The Young Girl turned boundless and darkly free in a future dystopia. Dr Lidia Yuknavitch, Audio Book, april 2017, bol. Com prijs € 24,99, 2 - 3 weken. It's a quote from her 1979 science fiction novel Shikasta, about a world that has destroyed itself through environmental damage and war. Two new novels, “The Book of Joan,” by Lidia Yuknavitch, and “Isadora,” by Amelia Gray, make use of the lives of radical historical figures in distinct ways.
