"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
