KURT VONNEGUT is a master of contemporary
American literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and
incomparable imagination first captured Americaâ€™s attention
in The Sirens of Titanin 1959 and established
him as â€śa true artistâ€ť* with Catâ€™s Cradlein
1963. He is, as Graham Greene has declared, â€śone of the best
living American writers.â€ť
GalĂˇpagos 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 GalĂˇpagos Islands are about to become the progenitors
of a brave new, and totally different human race. Here,
Americaâ€™s master satirist looks at our world and shows us
all that is sadly, madly awryâ€“and all that is worth saving.
â€śVonnegut is a postmodern Mark Twain...
GalĂˇpagos is a madcap genealogical adventure.â€ťâ€“The
