About the Book

The world of Elve and her great-grandson, Hom, is dominated by the apparently world-wide regime of the Glorious New World Republic of Asia and the Americas. All they can know about this regime is that it has its seat in the Magic Mountain, whence are broadcast nightly TV programs: the “Hour of Power”, Elve calls the broadcast; “Heaps of Poop”, says Hom. The H of P informs Loyel Sitizens of the laws and regulations governing the behaviour of all the people. Glorification of the GNWRAA and of Owr Preshus Leeder are integral to the message.


The digital power that remains after historic nuclear destruction is vigilantly limited to government uses. Elve doesn’t even have a phone. But secretly, she keeps five books, books which have escaped a thousand years of cultural upheavals, political stupidity, and environmental devastation. In the books are found many things the RAA despises: fun, generosity, abundance, beauty, love, truth. Elve and Hom and their family, which extends to a cadre of friends, read, and partake of a hope that a different and better world is possible. They begin to build it.
