       Additional Information  
      An allegorical post-Apocalyptic novel, in which three surviving social groups--the Professors, the Barbarians, and the Out People--come into conflict when a Professor's daughter is captured and becomes the bride of a Barbarian. The novel is set in a future Dark Ages, but its opening is a clever parody of "Emma."
