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.

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