Almost 1992. The Soviet Union is about to crumble. And reigning Wimbledon champion Emma Jasohn is confined to her home on the Long Island Sound. Pregnant, single, broken-hearted, stripped of privacy, she’s plotting revenge. She needs help.
Part 3 of FAMEPUNK, the groundbreaking historical fantasy novel, is a nativity story with several twists and a fallen star. A generous short read that can double as an introduction to the story, THE LUTHERAN is a fast-paced, self-contained, often uproarious comedy of manners, dreamers, sinners, students, actors, renegades, gangsters, magic-workers and (of course) babies. This season, before you take in another work of American fiction, pause here and treat yourself to an original taste of sweet, subversive pleasure.
