I’ve been waiting two years for Lidia Yuknavitch to return to the pod. We had one of the most illuminating conversations about her novel The Small Backs of Children and her memoir the Chronology of Water, and again we waste no time getting to the heart of things this time around when we chat about her new book, The Book of Joan. Inspired by the Joan of Arc story, this a dystopian feminist manifesto will spark a myriad of longing–longing for human connection, sexuality and touch–and a longing to save our environment from destruction. I hope you can tell from listening just how wonderful it was to be reunited with Lidia!
