To Walden the saxophone was, at once, his key to the world in which he found himself, and the way by which that world was rendered impotent to brand him either a failure or madman or Negro or saint.
Consider the most famous pure dystopian tale of modern times, 1984 , by George Orwell (1903-1950), published in 1948 (the same year in which Walden Two was published). I consider it an abominably poor book. It made a big hit (in my opinion ) only because it rode the tidal wave of cold war sentiment in the United States.Isaac Asimov
