From the award-winning Walter Mosley comes JOHN WOMAN, a dazzling novel of ideas about the sexual and intellectual coming-of-age of an unusual man who goes by the name Woman.

A convention-defying novel, JOHN WOMAN recounts the transformation of an unassuming boy named Cornelius Jones into John Woman, an unconventional history professor - while the legacy of a hideous crime lurks in the shadows.

Engaging with some of the most provocative ideas of recent intellectual history, JOHN WOMAN is a compulsively readable, deliciously unexpected novel about the way we tell stories, and whether the stories we tell have the power to change the world.
