Acerca de

Sinopsis:

The 1990s. Euthanasia and quarantines for AIDS have become the norm. But can even this world sanction a substance that "improves" people's behavior and so reduces crime, unemployment and teen pregnancy? A riveting bestseller by the author of The Moviegoer.

From the Publisher:

"What a pleasure it is to read a real novel.... THE THANATOS SYNDROME has the ambition and purposefulness to take on the world, to wrestle with its shortcomings, and to celebrate its glories." -Washington Post Book World

"He is a dazzlingly gifted novelist.... Percy stages a lively medical mystery...that no serious reader will want to miss." -USA Today

"There is ample evidence of Percy's brilliance in THE THANATOS SYNDROME - the droll Dixie anthropology, the pitch-perfect dialogue, the sheer intelligence everywhere on the page.... It is splendidly, uproariously catholic, as well." --Douglas Bauer, Atlantic Monthly

"Shimmers with intelligence and verve...THE THANATOS SYNDROME is highbrow hilarity all the more discerning for distinguishing its tears behind lots of laughs." --Newsday
