A brilliantly composed narrative packed with unforgettable photographs, this visionary meditation on time, heritage, and human agony is definitely considered one of Barker’s so much distinctive—and distinguished—creations.

Chiliad contains interrelated tales, tales filtered during the depression mind's eye of a narrator perched at the banks of a river that flows from side to side via time. the 1st stream, “Men and Sin,” occurs within the millennial yr of one thousand advert. the second one, “A second on the River’s Heart,” happens precisely a thousand years—the size of a “chiliad”—later, because the new millennium methods. on the middle of those tales are savage, likely inexplicable atrocities, each one of which reaches around the centuries to mirror and fix with the opposite. because the narratives spread and time turns into more and more permeable, Barker creates a gloomy, sorrowful portrait of the traditional human means for cruelty and destruction. Writing regularly with lucidity and beauty, he addresses a bunch of common matters, between them the ability of guilt and grief, and the necessity to locate symptoms of that means within the chaos that surrounds us. within the strategy, he examines the unending chain of outcomes that unavoidably continue from a unmarried act of violence.

At as soon as highly expansive and deeply own, Chiliad is a compact masterpiece, a resonant reminder of Barker’s skill to create fictional worlds that improve and remove darkness from our own.
