LIMBO is a uniquely unusual, dazzling novel of the future that is unlike anything you have ever read- or are likely to read.
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.
