2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.

F. Scott Fitzgerald neglected his studies at school and college because he was occupied with his literary apprenticeship. His first appearance in print was "The Mystery of the Raymond Mortgage, " published in the St. Paul Academy Now and Then in October 1909 when he was thirteen. His first story in the Newman News was "A Luckless Santa Claus" (Christmas 1912), which introduces the subject of a young man committed to an adventure for the sake of love. At Princeton he wrote abundantly for The Nassau Literary Magazine and The Princeton Tiger, the humor magazine, as well as providing the lyrics for three Triangle Club shows. His Lit stories improved steadily, with the last two, "Sentiment-And the Use of Rouge" (June 1917) and "The Pierian Springs and the Last Straw" (October 1917) achieving mature treatment of love and sexual force.
