Synopsis: In this story told backwards, the life of Nazi war criminal, Doctor Tod T. Friendly is told from end to beginning. The doctor dies and then feels markedly better, breaks up with his lovers as a prelude to seducing them and mangles his patients before he sends them home.
Escaping from the body of the dying doctor who had worked in Nazi concentration camps, the doctor’s consciousness begins living the doctor’s life backwards, aware only that he is living the life of a horrible man at a horrible place in time.
