Audio avec voix humaine
Written originally in 1863 and first published in 1994, this "lost novel" depicts Jules Verne's vision of life in 1960s Paris. In this hyper-efficient but dystopian society, the story's young, idealistic protagonist, Michel Dufrenoy, laments that there is no room… for the human soul. Subways, automobiles, skyscrapers, electric lights, calculators, fax machines, and e-mail are all part of this utilitarian world. 1996. Uniform title: Paris au XXe siècle.
