In Berger's skewed dystopia, and order is neatly subverted: the women have the roles of men and vice versa. As in all Berger's books, language is scrupulously attended to, mordant humor is the order of the day, and the paradoxical idea that unhappiness can bring with it a kind of happiness is definitely part of the text.
