Description
"A madcap genealogical adventure . . . Vonnegut is a postmodern Mark Twain." -- The New York Times Book Review Galápagos takes the reader back one million years, to A.D. 1986. A simple vacation cruise suddenly becomes an evolutionary journey. Thanks to an apocalypse, a small group of survivors stranded on the Galápagos Islands are about to become the progenitors of a brave, new, and totally different human race. In this inimitable novel, America' s master satirist looks at our world and shows us all that is sadly, madly awry-and all that is worth saving. Praise for Galápagos "The best Vonnegut novel yet!" --John Irving "Beautiful . . . provocative, arresting reading." -- USA Today "A satire in the classic tradition . . . a dark vision, a heartfelt warning." -- The Detroit Free Press "Interesting, engaging, sad and yet very funny . . . Vonnegut is still in top form. If he has no prescription for alleviating the pain of the human condition, at least he is a first-rate diagnostician." --Susan Isaacs, Newsday "Dark . . . original and funny." -- People "A triumph of style, originality and warped yet consistent logic . . . a condensation, an evolution of Vonnegut's entire career, including all the issues and questions he has pursued relentlessly for four decades." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer "Wild details, wry humor, outrageous characters . . . Galápagos is a comic lament, a sadly ironic vison." -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch "A work of high comedy, sadness and imagination." -- The Denver Post "Wacky wit and irreverent imagination . . . and the full range of technical innovations have made [Vonnegut] America's preeminent experimental novelist." -- The Minneapolis Star and Tribune
