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.

Review:

"Vonnegut performs considerable complex magic... Fresh, funny, outrageous...he very nearly levitates" (New York Times)

"A great deal of wit and playfulness...an entire universe of disorder is distilled" (Guardian)

"Outrageous, witty, thought-provoking, unputdownable, scintillating, invigorating, ennobling, enlightening and masterly" (Spectator)

"Brilliant... It seems, at times, as if Voltaire has returned to satirise the horrors of plastic, disposable America" (Sunday Times)

Book Description:

'After Vonnegut, everything else seems a bit tame' Spectator
