â€śBoth funny and sadâ€¦just about perfect!â€ťâ€“Los Angeles
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 Titan in 1959 and established
him as â€śa true artistâ€ť* with Catâ€™s Cradle in
1963. He is, as Graham Greene has declared, â€śone of the best
living American writers.â€ť
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 todayâ€™s follies. But even the end of life-as-we-know-it
is transformed by Vonnegutâ€™s pen into hilarious farce (a
final slapstick that may be the Almightyâ€™s joke on us
â€śVonnegutâ€™s ongoing puppet showâ€¦that fabulous
is reborn.â€ťâ€“John Updike
hilariousâ€¦a brilliant vision of our wrecked, wacked-out
