Summary (From the publisher):

Four men, led by the Architect of Ruins, construct an Armageddon shelter in the shape of a giant cigar, so that when the end of the world comes they can enter eternity in the right mood; whilst playing a Schubert string quartet.

They amuse themselves by telling stories, which take on a life of their own, with walk-on parts for Faust, don Juan, da Ponte, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee and G. K. Chesterton etc, as the narrative flashes back and forth between the Middle Ages and the Modern Day, like a literary Möbius strip.
