We’re starting to see a new kind of fiction: “cli-fi,” or climate fiction. And Lidia Yuknavitch’s apocalyptic novel “The Book of Joan” is one of the most stunning examples. It’s the story of a near-future where Earth is decimated and the last few survivors are stranded out in space. It’s also a meditation on climate change, gender and the power of art.
