Cat's Cradle

By Kurt Vonnegut
Narrated by Tony Roberts / 7 hours 11 minutes

Cat's Cradle is Vonnegut's satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet's ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist; a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer; and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny.

About the Author

Kurt Vonnegut was 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 was, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers."


Reviews

“Cat's Cradle is an irreverent and often highly entertaining fantasy concerning the playful irresponsibility of nuclear scientists. Like the best of contemporary satire, it is work of a far more engaging and meaningful order than the melodramatic tripe which most critics seem to consider 'serious.' ”

Terry Southern, , The New York Times

“[Vonnegut is] an unimitative and inimitable social satirist.”

Harper’s Magazine

“A free-wheeling vehicle . . . an unforgettable ride!”

The New York Times
