Roll Me Over, Lay Me Down, and Do It Again: Song of the Clones

475 pages7 hours


This is a novel of absurdist fiction. ‘Roll me over ...’ fits perfectly into the mold of ‘The Metamorphosis’ by Franz Kafka. A man has the freakish misfortune to produce five fetuses in his lung, a doctor removes them, and a scientist grows them in culture vessels in his laboratory. The story is like the speech given in the novel by the poet Avril Goodbody, at the Vivisection Prevention League’s annual rally, in that it ‘ranges over the prickles of a host of thorny topics, dwelling just long enough on each to feel the pain.’ There are many moments of black humor here and romance plays a central role in the development of the story.
