9780099416708: Wanting Seed

Set in the near future, The Wanting Seed is a Malthusian comedy about the strange world overpopulation will produce.

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. It is a novel both extravagantly funny and grimly serious.

About the Author:

Anthony Burgess (1917–1993) is the author of many works, including A Clockwork Orange, The Wanting Seed, Nothing Like the Sun, Honey for the Bears, The Long Day Wanes, The Doctor Is Sick, and ReJoyce.

Review:

“Wildly and fantastically funny. . . . Here too is all the usual rich exuberance of Mr. Burgesss vocabulary, his love of quotations and literary allusions. . . . A remarkable and brilliantly imagined novel, vital and inventive.”
- Times Literary Supplement [London]
