Format: Paperback
In a future of impotent men, one slightly insane man holds the future of humanity in his...hands...

Baker creates a compelling story that will have you turning the pages and wanting more when it's all over. Max (The Poet) is a very believable character, and it's his believability that keeps you turning the pages, even when faced with events that seem hard to fathom. The morality of the main character is much like the later works of Heinlein, as Baker explores the sexuality of humanity.

Some readers will be shocked by what Mr. Baker writes, but he is able to explore sexuality without it drifting into smut.

A very good read indeed.

Format: Paperback
This is quite a strange book, in many ways a kind of psychoanalytical exploration of narrative--I have never encountered anything like how the author narrates the complex identity of the protagonist. At times it is difficult, and I found myself wincing at some of the viewpoints expressed, particularly around gender (not a politically correct book!), but still and all this book is definitely worth reading for the strange genius of its narrative technique. Parts of it are laugh out loud funny, if only because of being bewilderingly bizarre.
