KAIROS – KAIROS

BY TICHÝ, ANDRZEJ

Kairos is a moment of crisis, a critical point between two occurrences, in contrary to kronos, the linear time. Andrzej Tichýs new novel twists around those turning points, in the present and in the past, in the lonely life as the joint. It moves between ages of time and places where resistance grows, where man is torn between powerlessness and action, between dazzling vision and catastrophic reality.

REVIEWS

“A novel that will be interpreted yet in a hundred years time”  
Jan-Olov Nyström, Hudikvalls Tidning

”Andrzej Tichýs new novel ”Kairos” is a grand and exceptional piece. The text is full of references but the reading act is light as a feather, the ambition is great but the result even greater. It feels like you aren’t finished with it in one read, if you ever will be.”
Amanda Svensson, Expressen
