Cat´s Cradle is Kurt 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. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat´s Cradle is one of this century´s most important works...and Vonnegut at his very best. 1. Language: English.
