Cat's Cradle is Vonnegut's satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet's ultimate fate, it features a little person as the protagonist; a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer; and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A free-wheeling vehicle…an unforgettable ride.” New York Times
“Our finest black-humorist…We laugh in self-defense.” Atlantic Monthly
Vonnegut's 1963 satirical science fiction novel still manages to pack a powerfully subversive punch…Tony Roberts brings tremendous energy to his reading, projecting a sardonic tone perfectly suited to Vonnegut.” Publishers Weekly
