A Messiah of the Last Days was C.J. Driver's fourth novel, first published in 1974. A profound meditation on politics and a complex portrait of English society, it is also fast-paced and suspenseful.
Its narrator is Tom Grace, a pragmatic, efficient London barrister with a comfortable life. But his ordered world is unsettled by his involvement with a young man he defends in court - John Buckleson, the charismatic leader of an anarchic movement calling themselves The Free People. Though deeply divided in many ways, the two men are drawn to each other by a common dream of creating a new social and moral order. Buckleson, though, is a figure of interest to more people than those who subscribe to his vision.
'C. J. Driver's exceptional alertness to our times is matched by the power and zest of his evocative writing, lit up by wry wit.' Nadine Gordimer
Inhaltsangabe: Tom Grace is a pragmatically efficient London barrister living in a comfortable family house overlooking the Kent weald. But his neatly ordered life is about to be shaken apart by his involvement with a young man he defends in court - John Buckleson, the demagogic, charismatic leader of a commune. Though deeply divided in many ways, the two men are attracted to each other by a common dream of creating a new social and moral order. The central theme is realised in the context of Grace's world of courtroom procedure, the suspense and details of which are entirely absorbing. A Messiah of the Last Days, political in the most profound sense, is concerned with widely differing voices but is unified by its comprehensive image of contemporary English society.
