Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“He is our strongest writer…the most stubbornly imaginative.”–John Irving

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.”

Wampeters, Foma & Granfalloons (Opinions) is a rare opportunity to experience Kurt Vonnegut speaking in his own voice about his own life, his views of the world, his writing, and the writing of others. An indignant, outrageous, always witty, and deeply felt collection of reviews, essays, and speeches, this work is a window not only into Vonnegut’s mind...but also into his heart.

“A Great cosmic comedian and a rattler of human skeletons, an idealist disguised as a pessimist…has written a book filled with madness and truth and absurdity and self-revelation.”– St. Louis Post-Dispatch
