Övermannen : en modern roman

by Alfred Jarry


The Supermale is a 1902 novel by the French writer Alfred Jarry. Its irreverent and darkly humorous storyline involves elements of science fiction. It features a race between a train and a team of cyclists fuelled by "perpetual-motion food", and the exploits of a "supermale" capable of prodigious feats of endurance and sexual athleticism. It was Jarry's last novel.
Translated into English by Barbara Wright in 1968.
