Synopsis:
A Jewish boy is hidden from the Nazis in a laboratory dedicated to genetic studies of flies, which is poignantly ironic. He develops a virtual family among the technicians who work there and lives mainly off the corn meal used to feed the larvae. Information about the Holocaust is only filtered in indirectly, which is effective in the same way that violence is usually left to the imagination in Hitchcock movies. The boy evolves a resilient model of reality and humanity from the simple ingredients of what relationships and play he can sustain in this protected environment. The title and metaphor for the book relates to how at the end of the madness of war, he represents the “wild type” or un-mutated form of humanity.
