       Additional Information  
      The female of the species vanished on the afternoon of the second Tuesday of February at four minutes and fifty-two second past four o'clock Eastern Standard Time. One minute it was the world as we know it. In the next, the women disappeared from the men, and the men from the women. Suddenly it became two worlds-one male, one female, each as before, except that there was no opposite sex! . In the parallel stories, Philip Wylie, famous author of Generation of Vipers and Opus 21, tells what happened to governments and towns, to housewives and bums, to lovers and philosophers. To sex and science and sin and religion. And, especially, what happened to love.
