Fiction

“Both funny and sad…just about perfect!”–Los Angeles Times

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.”

Slapstick presents an apocalyptic vision seen through the eyes of the current King of Manhattan (and last President of the United States), a wickedly irreverent look at the all-too-possible results of today’s follies. But even the end of life-as-we-know-it is transformed by Vonnegut’s pen into hilarious farce (a final slapstick that may be the Almighty’s joke on us all.)

“Vonnegut’s ongoing puppet show…that fabulous is reborn.”–John Updike

“Imaginative and hilarious…a brilliant vision of our wrecked, wacked-out future.”–Hartford Courant
