Summary, etc.: Told with P.D. James's trademark suspense, insightful characterization, and riveting storytelling, The children of men is a story of a world with no children and no future. The human race has become infertile, and the last generation to be born is now adult. Civilization itself is crumbling as suicide and despair become commonplace. Oxford historian Theodore Faron, apathetic toward a future without a future, spends most of his time reminiscing.
