Overview

&;A free-wheeling vehicle . . . an unforgettable ride!&;&;The New York Times 

Cat&;s Cradle
is Kurt Vonnegut&;s satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet&;s ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist, a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer, and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat&;s Cradle is one of the twentieth century&;s most important works&;and Vonnegut at his very best.

&;[Vonnegut is] an unimitative and inimitable social satirist.&;&;Harper&;s Magazine

&;Our finest black-humorist . . . We laugh in self-defense.&;&;Atlantic Monthly

A young writer decides to interview the children of a scientist primarily responsible for the creation of the atomic bomb
