An inventive, thought-provoking and absurd dystopian novel set in a world rampant with overpopulation by the author of A Clockwork Orange – now a Penguin Essential
Tristram Foxe and his wife, Beatrice-Joanna, live in their skyscraper world where official family limitation glorifies homosexuality. Eventually, their world is transformed into a chaos of cannibalistic dining-clubs, fantastic fertility rituals, and wars without anger.
