Synopses & Reviews
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.
About the Author
Kurt Vonnegut was a master of contemporary American Literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Siren's of Titan
in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" with Cat's Cradle
in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers."
Stanley Tucci's first co-directing, co-screenwriting and acting effort was the acclaimed Big Night; he also wrote, directed and co-produced The Imposters and directed Joe Gould's Secret.
