Dennis Weir. And it's not revealed at the end; it's revealed, very
obliquely, midway through. 

_Peace_ does have a science-fictional element: The factory built by
Dennis's "uncle" Julius manufactures a powdered orange drink made from
potato powder. And a lot of the stories embedded within _Peace_ are
fantastic--either fairy tales or supernatural horror.
