Galapagosby Kurt Vonnegut
Synopses & Reviews
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."
Galapagos 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 Galapagos 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 post-modern Mark Train....Galapagos is a madcap genealogical adventure." New York Times Book Review
"The best Vonnegut novel yet!" John Irving
"Beautiful — provocative, arresting reading." USA Today
"Vonnegut is a postmodern Mark Twain... Galapagos is a madcap genealogical adventure." The New York Times Book Review
