Summary
Some time in the near future, university lecturer Caspar receives a gift from a former student called Liv- a memory stick containing a virtual narrative. Hooked up to a virtual reality bodysuit, he becomes immersed in the experience of their past sexual relationship. But this time it is her experience. What was for him an erotic interlude, resonant with the thrill of seduction, was very different for her - and when he has lived it, he will understand how. Latera A convicted paedophile recruited to Liv's experiment in collective consciousness discovers a way to escape from his own desolation. A synthetic boy, designed by Liv's team to 'love' men who desire adolescents, begins to question the terms of his existence. L, in transition to a state beyond gender, befriends Liv, in transition to a state beyond age. Liv herself has finally transcended the corporeal - but there is still the problem of love. An Uncertain Grace is a novel in five parts by one of Australia's most inventive and provocative writers. Moving, thoughtful, sometimes playful, it is about who we are - our best and worst selves, our innermost selves - and who we might become
