Breakfast of Champions: A Novel

Breakfast of Champions: A Novel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Breakfast Of Champions is vintage Vonnegut. One of his favorite characters, aging writer Kilgore Trout, finds to his horror that a Midwest car dealer is taking his fiction as truth. The result is murderously funny satire as Vonnegut looks at war, sex, racism, success, politics, and pollution in America and reminds us how to see the truth.

Synopsis:

The author questions the condition of modern man in this novel depicting a science fiction writer's struggle to find peace and sanity in the world
