Kneen, Krissy

Entry updated 13 July 2020. Tagged: Author.

(1968-    ) Australian bookseller, film and television director, screenwriter and author. In An Uncertain Grace (2017) a young woman intensely focused on recreating the night she lost her virginity (see Sex) invents a Virtual Reality immersion device. Her seducer, a teacher who had made questionable use of the power of his position, is forced to wear this suit, and to come to a better understanding of what they had shared, what he had inflicted. Wintering (2018), set in a remote part of Tasmania, evokes the chthonic ferocity of (it may be) Gaia as the men of a small village disappear and their widows join together in the shadows. As with The Kettering Incident (2016), there is a sense that humanity's tenure on the planet (see Fantastika) may be fragile. [JC]
