Books: ‘The Famine of Men’
Here’s the idea: visit a brand new virus on men that renders them impotent. Then see what happens next. That’s the basis of “The Famine of Men,” a science fiction novel by Richard H. Kessin, a retired molecular biologist who lives, now, in Norfolk, CT.
So, what would be the consequences here? Kessin asks.
Would women, particularly women in science, gain advantages that testosterone-fueled males have historically denied them?
Would women in science rectify the situation, so to speak, and restore these soft, beardless, confused men to their former vigor?
