Description

The visionary final novel in Paul Kingsnorth’s iconic Buccmaster Trilogy – a timely and seminal portrait of climate apocalypse.A small religious community is living in what were once the fens of eastern England. They are perhaps the world’s last human survivors. Now, they find themselves stalked by a force that draws ever closer, a force intent on destroying everything they stand for.Set on the far side of the ecological apocalypse, Paul Kingsnorth’s new novel is a mythical, polyphonic drama driven by elemental themes: of community versus the self, the mind versus the body, machine versus man – of whether to put your faith in the present or the future.Alexandria completes the Buckmaster Trilogy, which began with Kingsnorth’s prize-winning The Wake.
