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.

He was, as Graham Greene declared, one of the best living American writers. Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007."
