Description
"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
