Author's tenth novel. A futuristic literary fantasy in which Plato lectures to the citizens of 38th century London on subjects as diverse as Sigmund Freud's comic masterpiece Jokes and Their Relation to the Subconscious, and Charles Darwin's greatest novel, The Origin of Species, only to be put on trial for corrupting the youth of the city.
