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 was a master of contemporary American Literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in "The Siren's of Titan" in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" with "Cat's Cradle" in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers."
