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.
“A free-wheeling vehicle . . . an unforgettable ride!”—The New York Times
