We present a one-dimensional model of electrons coupled to localized moments of spin (Formula presented) in which magnetism and superconductivity interplay in a nontrivial manner. This model has a non-Fermi-liquid ground state of the chiral spin liquid type. An unconventional odd-frequency pairing is shown to be the dominant instability of the system, together with antiferromagnetism of the local moments. We argue that this model captures the physics of the Kondo-Heisenberg spin (Formula presented) chain, in the limit of strong Kondo coupling. Finally, we discuss briefly the effect of interchain coupling.
