    One moment Joseph Schwartz is a happily retired tailor in Chicago, 1949. The next he's a helpless stranger on Earth during the heyday of the first Galactic Empire. Earth, as he soon learns, is a backwater, just a pebble in the sky, despised by all the other 200 million planets of the Empire because its people dare to claim it's the original home of man. And Earth is poor, with great areas of radioactivity ruining much of its soil - so poor that everyone is sentenced to death at the age of 60. Joseph Schwartz is 62.

    bonnie says: "Jewel of a book"
    "Rip Van Winklestar."
    Overall

    A quaint Sci-Fi Rip Van Winkle story set in the "distant" future. The Story is OK, at times I thought it a bit trite but was worth the read. I have not read any book length Asimov before, and although I would not place this in my top 10% for literary quality, I think I will look for some additional IA pieces.
