The Sirens of Titan: A Novel

The Sirens of Titan: A Novel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Sirens of Titan is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there’s a catch to the invitation–and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Originally published: New York: Delacorte Press, c1959.

Synopsis:

In a paperback re-release of a classic Vonnegut work, the world's wealthiest and most depraved man takes a wild space journey to distant worlds, where he learns about the deeper purpose of human life. Reissue.

About the Author

Kurt Vonnegut’s 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” (The New York Times) with Cat’s Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, “one of the best living American writers.” Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.
