Supermale by Alfred Jarry

Book Description

The act of love is of no importance, since it can be performed indefinitely.' With that remark, the gentleman adventurer Andre Marcueil sets into motion an outrageous plot of scientific experiments nd technological heroism focused on author Alfred Jarry's trinity of obsessions: sex, alcohol, and bicycles. Like a mock Jules Verne, Jarry describes the manner in which the 'Supermale' ultimately proves his claim; after 82 times with a woman, attending doctors hooks him up to a machine instead with whom he merges in the book's final climax.'
