Overview

This is a farcical time-travel fantasy in which Nikita Khrushchev finally gets to go to Disneyland. History buffs will recall that a diplomatic flap occurred when the Secret Service felt that the labyrinthine layout of Disneyland represented a security risk to the visiting Soviet leader, and thus the Eisenhower Administration denied him permission to visit the theme park. In this work of speculative theology, the universe is altered in such a way that, with the help of assorted cosmic characters, ranging from ordinary Buddhist monks, and Jesus Christ, to gods in the Hindu pantheon, this caper is pulled off at great peril.

One of the main farcical devises is the attitude of the Soviet Leader during these escapades. While a myriad of supernatural events are going on around him, the stalwart Atheist and Communist is continually reinterpreting events in such a way that his Marxist dogmas are not compromised. Meanwhile, the material world itself threatens to be torn to shreds, endangering the lives or the protagonists unless they accomplish their mission on time.
