KIRKUS REVIEW

The year is 1999. The population has exploded. Manhattan Island is sinking under the weight of 35,000,000 bodies. Civilization is in a Welfare State and the daily bread is a seaweed cracker. In this year before the new century things get worse as we follow the adventures of a various assortment of characters: a dedicated cop, his girl from the Upper Classes who is content to live on love, a resourceful young Chinese hood, a demented Doomsday preacher and a wise old man who tells us, if we hadn't guessed, what the book is all about-- birth control. The message works, parts of the plot don't. But it's one of Harrison's best.
