Annotation

Much of the setting of the novel is an intentional community in the United States where a man from England is hiding from his past and the authorities. The community is, as the title suggests, presented, not entirely favorably, as a refuge from the world. The people wear unattractive clothing, work, eat, and meditate. No books allowed.
