Description

Eliot Rosewater drunk, volunteer fireman, and President of the fabulously rich Rosewater Foundation is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature . . . with a little help from writer Kilgore Trout. "God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater" is Kurt Vonnegut's funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.



About the Author
Kurt Vonnegut s black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America s attention in "The Sirens of Titan" in 1959 and established him as a true artist ("The New York Times") with "Cat s Cradle" in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, one of the best living American writers. Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007."
