From front DJ flap - "A modern parable is a rare event in the world of modern literature. Yet to-day, with the world in the melting-pot, the parable form is peculiarly appropriate, to state ideas which can hardly yet be put forward in concrete detail. This profound & witty Voltairian dialogue between a 20th century Noah & an Old Testament Deity sparkles with Wellsian wisdom, & is written with such tautness & style as to be certain of a permanent place among Wells' greates ventuures."
