Octavo, cloth backed boards. A picaresque novel set several centuries after a nuclear holocaust.

"... a stylish and amusing narrative [that] gained a good deal of praise on first publication." - Pringle. The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), 89. 1964 Nebula and 1965 Hugo nominee. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-841. Survey of Science Fiction Literature I, pp. 493-96.
