An unsettling anti-manifesto—or, as Cotler names his genre, “elegy for the manifesto”—calling for a radical reconsideration of the 21st century’s position in the history of art and literature in light of developments in the field of cryopreservation, that is, suspended animation of animals and, theoretically, humans. An argument all the more alarming due to the rigor and sobriety with which it unfurls.
