Slapstick or Lonesome No More!

Slapstick or Lonesome No More!

Bryn says: The alternate title: Lonesome No More! It's the closest Vonnegut came to writing an autobiography - screaming with the absurdity of the human condition and overflowing with love. The humor here isn't as dark as it is a beacon of light. Reading it is like eating a bag of chips; you read one short chapter and the next thing you know, you've finished the whole thing.

"Some of the best and most moving Vonnegut."--San Francisco Chronicle

Slapstick presents an apocalyptic vision as seen through the eyes of the current King of Manhattan (and last President of the United States), a wickedly irreverent look at the all-too-possible results of today's follies. But even the end of life-as-we-know-it is transformed by Kurt Vonnegut's pen into hilarious farce--a final slapstick that may be the Almighty's joke on us all.

"Both funny and sad . . . just about perfect."--Los Angeles Times

"Imaginative and hilarious . . . a brilliant vision of our wrecked, wacked-out future."--Hartford Courant
