Welcome to the monkey house
Kurt Vonnegut is a master of contemporary American Literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in "The Siren's of Titan" in 1959 and established him as "a true artist"* with "Cat's Cradle" in 1963. He is, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers." "Welcome to the Monkey House" is a collection of Kurt Vonnegut's shorter works. Originally printed in publications as diverse as "The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction" and "The Atlantic Monthly," what these superb stories share is Vonnegut's audacious sense of humor and extraordinary range of creative vision. "*The New York Times"
