This novel tells the story of a devilish pair of twins whose enormous intellect is hidden behind a facade of idiocy.

Review:

"Vonnegut's best novel in years-funny and prophetic...something special" (The Nation)

"Although it is set in the near future, Hocus Pocus is the most topical, realistic Vonnegut novel to date, and shows the struggle of an artist a little impatient with allegory and more than a little impatient with his own country" (New York Times Book Review)

"Hocus Pocus is, of course, extremely funny. Jokes are told, deadpan and whiplash-sharp; neat, compulsive little anecdotes with stings in the tail jostle one another down the page" (Sunday Correspondent)

"After you have read one of Kurt Vonnegut's gleefully pessimistic novels, his words go on colouring your world for a long time afterwards... not to read him would be to miss out on lessons that need to be learned about the age we live in" (Sunday Times)

"It is all done with voice. Vonnegut is a master of the first-person, manic-depressive stand-up" (Observer)

Book Description:

Master of post-modern satire, Kurt Vonnegut Jr patterns trajectories of sex, spite, crime and power in this kaleidoscopic novel.
