About the Author

Joanne Harris is an Anglo-French author, whose books include fourteen novels, two cookbooks, and many short stories. Her work is extremely diverse, covering aspects of magical realism, suspense, historical fiction, mythology, and fantasy. In 2000, her 1999 novel Chocolat was adapted to the screen, starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. She is an honorary Fellow of St. Catharine's College, Cambridge, and in 2013 was awarded an MBE by the Queen. Her hobbies are listed in Who's Who as "mooching, lounging, strutting, strumming, priest-baiting, and quiet subversion." She also spends too much time on Twitter, plays flute and bass guitar in a band first formed when she was sixteen, and works from a shed in her garden at her home in Yorkshire.

Reviews

"The Gospel of Loki is a charming novel, told with snark, wit and familiarity. Harris's voice of Loki is an addictive thing, a pleasure to consume. While some may be most familiar with the Norse gods from the Marvel films, Harris draws the characters magnificently from their original inspirations and makes them her own."--Rob Bedford "Tor.com "
"If everything you know about Loki begins and ends with the actor Tom Hiddleston, this book is for you.

The way Harris writes him, you can't help but like him, even as he confesses to the most absurd and/or horrific deeds; well, you like him, but you wouldn't really want to be acquainted with him--being his enemy or his friend seems equally dicey. One has to admire the author for imposing her own take on the character."--Kirkus Reviews
