Monarchs reign everywhere in Europe, even the Ottoman Empire hasn't fallen. The US stay a backward country full of cowboys, gold diggers, and rednecks - Vienna is the center of the world, full of Jews, psychoanalysts,​ and irony. Here, in the 21st century, protagonist Alexei starts a liaison with a society lady - Barbara Gottlieb, despite the name Sephardic - whose husband is very far away, but sending uncalming news. Part of the novel are also set on the Moon, of all places.)
