From the author of Timequake , this "irresistible" novel ( Cleveland Plain Dealer ) tells the story of Eugene Debs Hartke-Vietnam veteran, jazz pianist, college professor, and prognosticator of the apocalypse. Here is the adventure of Eugene Debs Hartke. He's a Vietnam veteran, a jazz pianist, a college professor, and a prognosticator of the apocalypse (and other things Earth-shattering). But that's neither here nor there. Because at Tarkington College-where he teaches-the excrement is about to hit the air-conditioning. And it's all Eugene's fault. "Vonnegut is back, with plenty to say...combining clever wit with keen social observation. Hocus Pocus re-established Mr. Vonnegut's place as the Mark Twain of our times." -- Atlanta Journal & Constitution " Hocus Pocus is the most topical, realistic Vonnegut novel to date...He is a satirist with a heart, a moralist with a whoopee cushion." --Jay McInerney, The New York Times "It's 'Vonnegut's best novel in years-funny and prophetic...something special.'" -- The Nation
