Welcome to the Monkey House/Palm Sunday:An Autobiographical Collage Paperback
A diabolical government asserts control by eliminating orgasm from sex in the title story of Welcome to the Monkey House - setting the tone for a collection shot through with Vonnegut's acrid wit, and his bewilderment at the corruption of humanity.
From riffs on country music, George Bush, and his mother's midnight mania, to a bitter-sweet tribute to a dead friend, Palm Sunday demonstrates why Kurt Vonnegut is equally well known as an essayist and commentator as he is a novelist.
This caustic, funny and poignant collection resonates with Vonnegut's singular voice.
