Meshing actualities with invention, it renders a future past that is nostalgic and predictive, an account of hope and longing at the onset of World War II. Focusing on Zeke Lichtenquist -- an artist moved into the Fairs Town of Tomorrow -- the book takes us on a search for authenticity and meaning.

Franklin Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, and the Fairs president Grover Whalen all pop in and out, players in a fabled New York of the late 1930s.This work of cyber-fiction and alternative history has taken its title from Salvadore Dalis surrealistic pavilion featured at the fair.
