Annotation

Flawed utopia in which immortality is achieved by indefinitely prolonging physical adolescence. Two classes develop, known as the players, who consume and enjoy, and the students, who are said to “remember” and do whatever planning is needed. The two classes normally have little to do with each other, but the novel is concerned with the relationship of a couple from the two classes, when the man is going through the lost experience of dying.
