How was it that Charles Darwin and another biologist, Alfred Russel Wallace, came up with the same theory simultaneously ? This intelligent, funny and original debut novel answers the question by purporting to be an anonymous memoir by an arrogant but brilliant homosexual whose life regularly crossed with Darwin and is now writing his apologia on a small island where he is the only human inhabitant.
