AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Fogarty's Animal Show, mistaken for carriers of the DNA plague that turned humans and animals into 'Muties', runs into prejudice that has Murri employee Ian Limrock hospitalised in the Mutie reserve. Drawing analogs between lepers, Aboriginal persecution, and the Muties, Ian finds - or redefines - his roots.
