The Time of Fire Will Come is a poetic and incandescent choral novel about the emancipation of bodies, the spirit of revolt and sorority.
With her new novel, Wendy Delorme proposes a dystopia where the crises we are going through today are reflected: a totalitarian society is set up after the sudden disappearance of part of the young generation mobilized for the climate. Unapproved books are banned, quarries are strictly controlled, borders are closed while a curfew is imposed and women are called upon to procreate to renew the population. But a community inspired by Monique Wittig’s Guérillères emerges to try to resist this new imposed order, totally devoid of culture?
Three decades later, various characters tell each other about their memories, their aspirations, how they survive, how they hide and sneak into this locked system that is on the verge of cracking but does not yet know it.
