Synopses & Reviews
Cat's Cradle is Vonnegut's satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet's ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist; a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer; and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny.
About the Author

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."
Tony Roberts is a familiar face from his appearances in numerous Woody Allen and other films, and his starring roles on Broadway in Arsenic and Old Lace, Promises, Promises, The Allergist's Wife, and Xanadu.
