Kairos

Written By:Gwyneth Jones - 1988

  • Kairos - Gwyneth Jones cover

Synopsis

A kind of thematic trilogy featuring profoundly divided women who descend into the world and redeem it, and is set in a near-future UK degenerating into fascism or anarchy. The title of the book is a theological term designating the moment of fullness in time when Christ appears, and clearly glosses the dramatic centre of each volume of the implied trilogy. In this case the female protagonist descends into the disintegrating UK's netherworld through ingesting a drug, Kairos, which literally recasts reality around her. The world she creates is cleansed of the grosser forms of evil

Catastrophe:

war

Type:

realistic
