Description: In the fifth Child, Doris Lessing introduced us to Ben Lovatt, a child so hideous in appearance and so abnormally strong and brutal that he was almost not human. Ben is now a young man, homeless in London, being fed, sheltered, and bathed by Mrs. Biggs, a kind but sickly old woman. When she falls ill, Ben takes refuge with Rita, a good-hearted prostitute who pities him but enjoys his raw, animal approach to sex. Ritas boyfriend enlists Ben's unknowing help to transport drugs to Paris, and the adventure that will change his life begins. From France to Brazil, Ben is both taken care of and taken advantage of by the people he meets: Alex, an American filmmaker who wants to use Ben in a movie; Teresa, who cares about Ben and worries for his safety; and Stephen Gaumlach, an ambitious, immoral scientist who wants to run genetic tests on him. The powerful story of a modern-day Frankenstein, Ben. In the World is by turns heartbreaking, funny, joyous, and horrifying as it follows Ben through the inevitable tragedy that is his life.
