Text: English, Italian (translation)From Library Journal:
Trying to escape desert heat, a mouse crawls inside a nuclear command center and falls onto the doomsday button. ``And this is how W.W. III started. Three more followed.'' Thus opens this satire by an Italian journalist/humorist. The time is 2157. The earth is now sunless and people live underground. Report of a planet that is everything ours once was provokes an exploration ship from the Sinoeuropean Federation, tailed by ones from the Aramerussian and Samurai military empires. Meanwhile, an incredible energy source is detected beneath the iced-over ruins of the Inca Empire. With all stops pulledincluding the kitchen sink'sBenni ties together these events while ribbing our civilization and its cultural trends. Sometimes silly and precious, often charming like minor Stanislaw Lem, Terra! is never less than amusing, if not quite profound. Jeff Clark, SUNY Coll. at Old Westbury Lib.
