9780099416708: Wanting Seed

"The Wanting Seed" is a Malthusian comedy about the strange world that overpopulation will produce. Tristram Foxe and his wife, Beatrice-Joanna, live in their skyscraper world of spacelessness where official family limitation glorifies homosexuality ("It's Sapiens to be Homo"). This time of the near future is eventually transformed into a chaos of cannibalistic dining-clubs, fantastic fertility rituals, and wars without enemies. "The Wanting Seed" is a novel both extravagantly funny and grimly serious.

Product Description:

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.

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."
