Heinlein, author of numerous "New York Times" best sellers. Across five decades, he appeared and reappeared in Heinlein's most popular novels, including "Methuselah's Children, Time Enough for Love, The Number of the Beast, To Sail Beyond the Sunset," and others. Long is the oldest living member of the human race by virtue of a unique set of chromosomes, aided by the advanced rejuvenation technology of the far future. He has been a pioneer on eight planets, survived wars and lynch mobs, and explored all of interstellar space known to humanity, as well as some other parts he doesn't talk about. Long's adventures and narrow escapes have given him a breadth of experience distilled through the irony of an immortal viewpoint. But there is nothing stuffy or snobbish about Long's reflections on the human condition. As the noted editor and critic David G. Hartwell has observed, "Lazarus' comments are acute, lively and intelligent." And here they are, compiled in one beautifully designed book, for the delight of the millions of Heinlein fans around the world.Read Less
