Annotation

Communal eutopia at the South Pole without love or kinship where big women ruled little men. No one could speak but had developed a variety of means of communication with flags and gestures and through smell and taste. The eutopia is thousands of years old. It is inadvertently destroyed by a large man encroaching from outside who the women instantly preferred to the men of the country. Much rather heavy-handed satire.
