Some believe this utopia probably differs from all previous ones in that it was actually built: it begins just beyond a Great Iron Door that few remember or have even seen. Two young men, immediately recognized as former workers who recycled into clowning, while on a guided tour of a stately place, most likely the White House, lose their way and make the grievous mistake of asking for the way out. It takes no time to show them the door. Troubles in utopia are just beyond it. The author has shown in a previous work, Land of Giants, that he has a fondness for treating such deep matters with total seriousness, a touch of playful farce, and a bit of humor.
