About this Episode

Philip Wylie was a prophet in the war between the sexes.

His 1951 novel "The Disappearance", in which, through an unexplained 'cosmic blink', all the women disappear from the world of the men and all the men disappear from the world of the women, is so noble and so disturbing, so wrenching and so uplifting, so wise and so uncommonly religious, that it becomes required reading for everyone who is a man and everyone who is a woman.
