Theodore Savage (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
When war breaks out in Europe -- modern, aerial war whose tactics include displacing entire populations -- British civilization collapses overnight. The ironically named Theodore Savage, an educated and idle civil servant, must learn to survive by his wits in a new Britain... one where science and technology swiftly come to be regarded with superstitious awe and terror. The book -- by a women's rights activist often remembered today for her polemical plays, tracts and treatises -- was first published in 1922.
About the Author
Cicely Hamilton (1872-1952) was an Anglo-Irish novelist, dramatist, and campaigner for women's rights who served during WWI with an ambulance unit and at a military hospital in France. Her plays include Diana of Dobson's (1908) and How the Vote was Won (1909); her 1909 treatise Marriage as a Trade is a witty criticism of that institution. The dystopian Theodore Savage is her only science fiction novel. Gary Panter won three Emmy awards for his set designs for Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
