Tagged: Author

(1907-1981) US rabbi and author, whose sf Satire, The Island of Not-Me: A True Chronicle of the Life of Geoghan Willbe on The Island of Not-Me, Preceded by an Account of his Person Before his Arrival Upon that Famous Isle (1935), places on an Island a Utopia with totalitarian characteristic. It is written in a style distantly evocative of Jonathan Swift. [JC]
