Book: The Legend of Pope Joan by Rachel Dax

26 Jan

PopeJoanRachel Dax’s new novel The Legend Of Pope Joan is a three-part, gender-bending, pansexual, theological extravaganza.

Part 1. Frankia. When thirteen-year-old Joan, having past the age of schooling for girls, is banned from studying theology, she is devastated. Determined to be a scholar and unable to submit to the expectations of her sex, Joan transforms into a boy, aided by her best friend Michael and a flamboyant entertainer, Amadeus Reichenbach. Together the trio embarks on a journey from Eastern Frankia to Athens where Joan and Michael intend to train as priests. But the road ahead is beset with unexpected challenges, including Joan’s burgeoning sexuality, and whether they will reach their final destination becomes less and less certain.
