"A thoughtful and absorbing read," notes the American living legend Jay Parini, "with a message to the world. Bruce Piasecki writes with energy and vision." William Throop adds: "Rich in humor and creative disruption, Piasecki's compelling feable of turbulent times reveals a human wisdom. His Fellineqque cast of characters share bursts of insight about life in an age of surveillance capitalism."

Come into this warm and bizarre neighborhood, consistently of a literary agent neighbor of Georg who is a friendly conspiratorialist! Watch the fantastical diatribes of George's colleage mates, Winston and Abe, and his articulate loving wife Varlissima. They talk about survival, books, birds, and express many loving things. The book peaks in the bizarre but believeable trial of Uncle Finn, who before the Event Police, is a regular guy with a photographic memory, reciting Shakespeare and describing places exactly he that only once saw in the Saratoga library. "This is my home, my neighborhood" the author declares, as he explore "the divine, splendid isolation of Covid-19" for all of us. Finale includes hilariously sportive but serious chapters called "Let Us All Start Again" and "All We Need is Hope."
