About This Book
Published as part of the Hollym Corporation
Publishers' series of short stories by well-known authors, "Tower of Ants"
reflects the lives of modern people in times of desolation. The story features a
man who is teased by the ants which have built their own society in his house.
The main character is a copy writer in an advertising company. Ants frequently
appear in his space and afflict him. He decides to fight against the insects,
but to no avail. The man realizes that he also lives a similar life to that of
the insect, a life that is stripped of individuality and freedom only to serve
as part of a larger unit, to keep the system working. In the end, he succumbs to
the collective system of ants and waits for them lying with sugared water
applied to all over his body.
