The novel describes a world set in the year 2048 after a catastrophe which has fractured the United States into several nations.

Francisco is presented as a mostly pagan city where the streets have been torn up for gardens and streams, no one starves or is homeless, and the city's defense council consists primarily of nine elderly women who "listen and dream"

Слайд 6 Описание слайда:
In this utopia the streets have been dug up and are replaced with gardens and fruit trees. Every house is equipped with a small garden plot. The food is available to everyone and access to food is not limited by money, power, or ownership. The only remnants of the pavement that once existed are narrow paths for walking, cycling, or rollerblading. The city is depicted as a beautiful town where everything is shared yet nothing is lacking.
