Tells parallel stories about two men at opposite ends of the socal scale living in separate societies in the same country at the same time. The country was the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The time was over 100 years ago, at the end of the 19th and the begnning of the 20th centuries. The empreror was Franz Joseph I of Austria-Hungary. The peasant was my wife's grandfather, Samuel Mozolak, who lived in a Slovak village in Hungary, one-half of the empire. The emperor's story is told in the odd-numberd chapters; the peasant's in the even-numbered ones.
