Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on "enemy" floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.

Synopsis:

"Harsh and ingenious! is an intense and vivid bestiary, which lingers unsettlingly in the mind." --Martin Amis,
