Literature / Robins in the Night

Go To

Legends speak of a man named Robin Hood.

They talk of his valiant deeds, of his courageous feats, of his noble exploits. They talk of how this man, this single man, stole from the rich and gave to the poor. They speak of his merry men, and of his bow and arrow, and his green tunic. They speak of him in hushed, reverent tones. They speak of him in loud, exuberant chants. They speak of him in story books.

The legends are, as is to be expected, fundamentally wrong.

Set in Knottwood, a small city in an alternate timeline Earth, this is the story of a transgender woman named Marian Stoke.

Robins in the Night is the debut novel of Dajo Jago.
