Hocus Pocus, by Kurt Vonnegut

Hocus Pocus, by Kurt Vonnegut

Regular price €8.00 Sale price €4.00

Vonnegut's most insistently antiwar novel since Slaughterhouse-Five; it is haunted by Vietnam.

The format is standard Vonnegut: homilies, refrains, and fragments of a life on planet Earth. The life belongs to Eugene Debs Hartke, Vietnam veteran-turned-teacher.

Among the most original stylists in America today, Vonnegut vents his disgust and moral outrage with government and humanity and the entire universe in yet another scathing social/political/philosophical satire.

The cumulative power of the novel is considerable. Hocus Pocus is vintage Vonnegut, witty, startling, satiric...off-the-wall brilliance.
