This classic of science-fiction and altogether trippy novel traces the trajectory of human evolution, Darwin-style, from our ape ancestors, where we meet Moon Watcher, to the distant space age, represented by Star-Child. At each stage, mankind’s evolution is affected by the discovery of a strange, black slab – a monolith measuring the divine proportions of 1:4:9. Moon Watcher’s discovery of his newly gained intellect parallels the Star-Child awakening to his newly gained powers. A beautifully symmetrical novel that answers the fundamental questions of who we are and where we are going.
