When tragedy strikes and Theodore Lebon is robbed of his adored wife, or rather, his wife´s head, for it is only her headless body that returns home after a riding accident, we are once again in that strange world that Sylvie Germain has made her own. It is a world where certainties dissolve and the confines of reality shift to embrace the unexpected and the improbable, the absurd, the grotesque, even the miraculous.

Based on a collection of interviews with Tobias over a period of six years, on topics such as research into the physical anthropology of living peoples; studies of mammalian chromosomes; an invitation from Louis and Mary Leakey to describe all the hominid fossils they discovered; the identification, description and naming of Homo habilis; re-opening of the Sterkfontein fossil site in 1966; Tobias´s political activism and medical ethics; and his personal philosophy concerning religion and evolution.
