What would be the passions and fates of men and women under the shadow of extinction? That is the theme of this sensational novel, written by a forty-year-old lawyer whose style will inevitably and perhaps even justifiably suggest comparisons with Jonathan Swift and Jules Verne. In a prose wherein are blended savagery and high imagination, the author traces the consequences of sterility from the terrible moment when the last baby (had it been white it would probably have been deified) is born, down to the stark and desolate horror of a world in which only one man is left alive. Between these two points in time lie almost a hundred years of horror, madness and grim humor, a feverish whirlpool of fanaticism, pogroms, massacres, laboratory near-miracles, race war, orgiastic paganism, sex conflict and over this whirlpool shifts forever the gray cloud of decay.
