9780060586232: Breakfast of Champions CD: Breakfast of Champions CD

Breakfast Of Champions is vintage Vonnegut. One of his favorite characters, aging writer Kilgore Trout, finds to his horror that a Midwest car dealer is taking his fiction as truth. The result is murderously funny satire as Vonnegut looks at war, sex, racism, success, politics, and pollution in America and reminds us how to see the truth.

" Vonnegut is George Orwell, Dr. Caligari and Flash Gordon compounded into one writer....A zany but moral mad scientist." -- "Time"
" Free-wheeling, wild and great....Uniquely Vonnegut." -- "Publishers Weekly"
