Lynn Joffe

Lynn Joffe's debut novel, the Gospel According to Wanda B. Lazarus, was published in November, 2020, by Modjaji Books.

A furiously funny, feminist take on the myth of the Wandering Jew. Wanda B. Lazarus freewheels through the ages relating her musically-charged, irreverent tales in her quest to become the tenth muse.

"Lynn Joffe’s writing is so alive, and wicked and mad, and full of surprises. The joyous fusing of art from the Muses with the mess of history. Like a Jewish Molly Bloom, let loose on history."
- Stephen Fry

In the beginning...

If we hadn’t been following Hadassah’s pomegranate all over the known world, we’d never have wound up in Bethany. Lazzie would still be alive. And I’d be mortal. But that’s not how the hamantaschen crumbled. A painted lady flaps her wings and all that jazz. The disciples remember it differently, but they were always going to write their own version anyway. I was there. I saw it all. Not in my present incarnation, but who am I to split sheitel hairs?
