Description

Five years have passed since a mysterious millennial downpour sent Homo Britannicus hurtling towards extinction. As a century's logic, religion, magic and science begin to connect, two men, three women and Queen Victoria's entire bestiary find themselves catapulted into a hilarious tale of rampant Darwinism, vegetarian conversion, true love and extinction. 'Superb a complex, intelligent novel which draws upon a vast array of ideas without ever losing coherence wonderfully funny fiction.' - "Daily Telegraph". '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".show more
