Annotation

Biologist William R. Clark looks at life and death at the level of the cell, as he addresses such profound questions as why we age, why death exists, and why death and sex go hand in hand. Clark ranges far and wide over fascinating terrain to illuminate the miraculous workings of life at its most elemental level and finds in these tiny spaces the answers to some of our largest questions.
