About the author (2008)

Irwin Friedman wrote this story in 1971 when he was twenty one years old. He was studying medicine immersed in the insanity of the Apartheid world of South Africa. The government of the day was becoming become increasingly schizophrenic. The story lay dormant as a ‘manuscript in the drawer’, its angry ending, which has been edited out, was a launch pad for his own personal brand of existentialism. In 1984 he re-wrote and edited it on his Radio Shack TRS 80 personal micro-computer as a tribute to the ‘world-gone-mad’ predictions of George Orwell. In 1996 after the miraculous transition of South Africa in the democratic elections of 1994, he re-edited it on his IBM PC. In 1998 he printed two copies. Finally in 2008 it has come out of the drawer. Why? The world is so different, but has anything changed?
