Sweet Dreams

Heaven, reported St John in Revelation, was a cubical city 12,000 furlongs high made of ‘pure gold, like unto clear glass’. That was 1,900 years ago, and Heaven as it is today has changed out of all recognition. This book is the account of a recent journey to the metropolis at the nerve-centre of the universe. The journey was undertaken not by a mystical reporter like St John, but by Howard Baker, an observer of much more modern outlook. He finds a city which offers rich opportunities for leisure and enjoyment – but one which also presents a moral and intellectual challenge. In short, a city which is highly adapted to the requirements of modest, responsible, likeable, educated men of liberal views and genuine social concern called Howard Baker. Enjoy this stylish and delightful novel from Michael Frayn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Frayn).
