Having escaped the perils of the Russian civil war, Pyat discovers that the hazards of Europe are as nothing to the perils that await him in America. Touring the country as a speaker for the Ku Klux Klan, he is almost immediately involved in scandals. Only the reappearance of his enduring love, his femme fatale, Mrs. Cornelius, offers him a chance of escape.

Review:

"[There are] those of us who have buttonholed strangers on the Underground and raved about Moorcock's masterpieces Byzantium Endures and The Laughter of Carthage" * Sunday Telegraph * "This is a rich, ambitious and erudite book" * Guardian * "His is the grand, messy flux itself, in all its heroic vulgarity, its unquenchable optimism, its enthusiasm for the inexhaustible variousness of things. Posterity will certainly give him that due place in English literature" -- Angela Carter * Guardian *
