Summary
Told in multiple voices which recall the archaic language of The Wake, Alexandria is set one thousand years into the future, and inhabits a similarly watery landscape to that explored in Kingsnorth's debut novel. Set many centuries after societal collapse and global meltdown, it is about a small, isolated community of survivors who in some respects are living in a futuristic Dark Ages. Out there, on the perimeter of their safe environment, they know there is a Stalker. His arrival into their world - which is both pre- and post-lapsarian - introduces a chaotic new reality as they are introduced to the idea of Alexandria: a virtual place of refuge, security, and comfort from the dangers of planet that has gone into meltdown. Alexandria blends the best of literary, historical, and sci-fi fiction forms to create a whole new genre suited to the post-Anthropocene world. It is a visionary novel that is both timely and timeless, and belongs in a rich Faber tradition going back to Graves, Golding, and Hughes
