OUSIA Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of OUSIA

"OUSIA" is an exploration of the futility of societal convention, of wrongfully condemned criminals, of the absurdity of legal institutions which have made justice a commodity for sale. From the inane repercussions of militant feminism, to the hopelessness of a homeless and chronic alcoholic, to the injustice of capital punishment, "OUSIA" looks into all of the crevices of post - modernism, and prophecies the end of the modern age. It is, however, not only a prophecy of the end of modernism, but it is a prophecy of the bright shining dawn into which we are all gazing as it makes its advent into our unique point in history.
