520    "In an unnamed dream country, the young man Cincinnatus C.
       is condemned to death by beheading for "gnostical 
       turpitude," an imaginary crime that defies definition. 
       Cincinnatus spends his last days in an absurd jail, where 
       he is visited by chimerical jailers, an executioner who 
       masquerades as a fellow prisoner, and by his in-laws, who 
       lug their furniture with them into his cell. When 
       Cincinnatus is led out to be executed, he simply wills his
       executioners out of existence: they disappear, along with 
       the whole world they inhabit"--Page 4 of cover.
