Description

Wampeters, Foma & Granfalloons 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.

"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
