It is the fifth millennium: The earth’s climate and geology have mutated as a result of wars, atomic explosions and a shift in its axis. The oceans have disappeared, leaving barely any water at all. The disconsolate comic Daniel, a neo-human and thus immortal, has already been cloned 24 times. He looks back at our extinct world and the relentless fear of ageing in a society whose final taboo is the irreversibility of transience. The gap between the obsessive adoration of the body in a society of old people and the impossibility of love can no longer be closed, the longed-for island of happiness remains an illusion.
