Product description

"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, witty, deeply felt collection of reviews, essays, and speeches, this is a window not only into Vonnegut's mind but also into his heart.

Author information

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.

Review quote

"He is our strongest writer . . . the most stubbornly imaginative."--John Irving "A book filled with madness and truth and absurdity and self-revelation . . . [Vonnegut is] a great cosmic comedian and rattler of human skeletons, an idealist disguised as a pessimist."--"St. Louis Post-Dispatch" "Vonnegut is George Orwell, Dr. Caligari and Flash Gordon compounded into one writer."--"Time"
