“Beautiful…provocative, arresting reading.”–USA
KURT VONNEGUT is a master of contemporary
American literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and
incomparable imagination first captured America’s attention
in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established
him as “a true artist”* with Cat’s Cradle in
1963. He is, as Graham Greene has declared, “one of the best
living American writers.”
Galápagos takes the
reader back one million years, to a.d. 1986. A simple
vacation cruise suddenly becomes an evolutionary journey.
Thanks to an apocalypse, a small group of survivors stranded
on the Galápagos Islands are about to become the progenitors
of a brave new, and totally different human race. Here,
America’s master satirist looks at our world and shows us
all that is sadly, madly awry–and all that is worth saving.
“Vonnegut is a postmodern Mark Twain...
Galápagos is a madcap genealogical adventure.”–The
New York Times Book Review
