Reviews

One of the warmest, wisest, funniest voices to be found anywhere in fiction * Daily Telegraph *
The time to read Vonnegut is just when you begin to suspect that the world is not what it appears to be. He is not only entertaining, he is electrocuting. You read him with enormous pleasure because he makes your hair stand on end * New York Times *
Vonnegut has looked the world straight in the eye and never flinched -- J. G. Ballard
