Dr. Martine, a neurosurgeon, flees a limited nuclear war to a forgotten island in the Indian Ocean. After 18 years of performing humane lobotomies on island natives, he sets out to rediscover the world. What he finds is a grotesque post-bomb society in which self-mutilation and installed prosthetic limbs are used to mute the urge to make war. Bernard Wolfe, co-author of Really The Blues, grapples with the largest issues of our century in Limbo.

Review:

As to the books of Bernard Wolfe, his extraordinary imagination, his range of styles and genres, should alone qualify him for a conspicuous role in 20th century American literature

To my mind, Bernard Wolfe remains one of the most remarkable original writers of the 20th century

Deep, strange, and wonderful, LIMBO represents a straight arrow pointing from the cautionary dystopias of Orwell and Huxley to the postwar absurdist mode of CATCH-22, Pynchon, and Philip K. Dick

Shrewd, and sometimes profound, comments on Western civilisation.--Observer

Book Description:

A forgotten classic by one of the great American writers of the twentieth century, with introductions from Harlan Ellison and David Pringle.
