Review quote

"Vonnegut performs considerable complex magic... Fresh, funny, outrageous...he very nearly levitates" * New York Times * "A great deal of wit and playfulness...an entire universe of disorder is distilled" * Guardian * "Outrageous, witty, thought-provoking, unputdownable, scintillating, invigorating, ennobling, enlightening and masterly" * Spectator * "Brilliant... It seems, at times, as if Voltaire has returned to satirise the horrors of plastic, disposable America" * Sunday Times *show more
