The author salutes George Orwell and Franz Kafka with a frightening story set in the dystopian American "future" of 1988. The novel, written in 1974, follows television and pop star Jason Taverner on an odyssey into a nightmare world in which he apparently has never existed. The expert Scott Brick adds his particular narrative skill to the mix, making Taverner's plight believable and eerily real. Brick keeps the story afloat as it rushes through confusing waters. The listener knows no more than the story’s hero as he tries to salvage his identity amid a fascist regime in which NOBLESSE OBLIGE is a foreign concept to a self-indulgent ruling class.
