From the Inside Flap:

Who is Kalki, and why is he planning to destroy the world -- and everything in it? And if Kalki is a mystical legend, then why does his ultimate world include only a select few chosen to breed a new human race?

About the Author:

Gore Vidal, né en 1925, publie son premier roman en 1946, mais c''est en 1948, avec Un garçon près de la rivière, qu''il devient célèbre, en abordant ouvertement le thème de l''homosexualité. Après une traversée du désert dans les années 1950, Gore Vidal, tout en participant activement à la vie politique, se lance dans une grande série de romans historiques qui lui assurent un immense succès. Grand pourfendeur des travers de la société américaine, Gore Vidal est aujourd''hui reconnu comme l''une des figures majeures de la littérature américaine contemporaine.
