He argues that these two authors, beset by obsessions about paternity in the post-nuclear age, sum up the way the image of the modern man is distorted to present its more reputable aspects' (Library Hub). A polemic directed at these two authors, by the novelist and film critic, Adam Mars-Jones (b.1954).
