Halfway between science-fiction novel and thriller, this tale by Nicolas Ancion, illustrated by Killoffer, draws freely on François Taddéi's research on the ageing process of bacteria and the transmission of knowledge in nature, from unicellular organisms to human beings. A tell of robots and organ traffic, L'Homme qui refusait de mourir revisits the figures of the mad scientist and the sorcerer's apprentice.
Also available in English edition.
