    DescriptionSince the year all British women became infertile, Bobby Sullivan's London veterinary clinic has been packed with primate 'children' and, speaking as an alpha male, he's sick to death of them. Hoping to reincarnate himself, he moves north, but finds there is no escape from the Darwinian imperative - or from the sexual pull of the luscious twins Rose and Blanche. As the legacy of the girls' ancestor, Victorian freak Tobias Phelps, begins to connect with a century of history, religion, and evolutionary theory, new hope looms for the nation's future.

    Review quote
    'Superb ... wonderfully funny fiction' Daily Telegraph 'A clever, beautifully written, zeitgeisty novel about man's uncertain place in the great chain of being ... underpinned with a sense of humour that takes the extraordinary for granted' Independent 'As much a comedic riff on the assumptions of social progress as it is on the eccentricities of natural selection ... think of Ark Baby as "Monty Python's Origin of Species" ' New York Times Book Review 'A massively ambitious, comic dystopic satire ... Jensen is as sharp as a needle' Literary Review
