Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1973. dj. Hardcover first edition - The first novel by an author who spent many years in academia, an "amusing but grim tale" set mostly 50 years in the future. "For years universities have been restive sounding boards for those who talk of revolution. . . Robert Kiley, a member of the faculty, seems to endorse the change but his efforts at reform have brought him near death, saved only by a colleagues experimental research in cryogenics. Awakening years in the future, Kiley finds that he is still on the university campus . . in a new era when everyone speaks in distorted versions of todays ghetto jargon, everyone (literate or not) has a PhD, and the university has become a miniature hell, isolated from the new paradise of America. But the money still comes from Washington and as the new 'leader,' Kiley goes to fetch it, a journey across America which reveals just how alien he - or his world - has become." 189 pp. ISBN: 0-385087446.
