Description

"[Vonnegut] at his wildest best."—The New York Times Book Review
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.
"A brilliantly funny satire on almost everything."—Conrad Aiken
"[Vonnegut was] our finest black humorist. . . . We laugh in self-defense."—The Atlantic Monthly
