9780030475405: God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater: Or, Pearls Before Swine

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is a comic masterpice.  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.  The result is Vonnegut's funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.

Review:

"Vonnegut faces up to the less glamorous phenomenon of human mediocrity in this sharp, hilarious, boundlessly humane story. It taught me about compassion and a few things about writing good dialogue" (Michel Faber Glasgow Herald)

"Rumbustious stuff... There may be greater novelists than Vonnegut, but there can be a few, if any, with as much good humour and generosity" ( Guardian)

"Filled with irony and black humour and a woozy bonhomie" ( Sunday Times)

"Wild hilarity" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Extremely funny" ( Observer)

Book Description:

The story of a man who reacts to past tragedy, family greed and fabulous wealth by promptly going insane
