Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
'Vonnegut looked the world straight in the eye and never flinched' J. G. Ballard
This bitterly funny Cold War satire on the end of the world expresses our deepest fears of Armageddon, and has become a counter-culture classic.
'A satirist with a heart, a moralist with a whoopee cushion' Jay McInerney
'The closest thing we had to a Voltaire' Tom Wolfe
'The time to read Vonnegut is just when you begin to suspect that the world is not what it appears to be. He is not only entertaining, he is electrocuting' The New York Times
