´´A free-wheeling vehicle . . . an unforgettable ride!´´-The New York Times 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 the twentieth century´s most important works-and Vonnegut at his very best. ´´[Vonnegut is] an unimitative and inimitable social satirist.´´-Harper´s Magazine ´´Our finest black-humorist . . . We laugh in self-defense.´´-Atlantic Monthly

Cats Cradle (1963) is Vonneguts most ambitious novel, which put into the language terms like &quote;wampeter&quote;, &quote;kerass&quote; and &quote;granfalloon&quote; as well as a structured religion, Boskonism and was submitted in partial fulfillment of requirements for a Masters Degree in anthropology, and in its sprawling compass and almost uncontrolled (and uncontrollable) invention, may be Vonneguts best novel. Written contemporaneously with the Cuban missile crisis and countenancing a version of a world in the grasp of magnified human stupidity, the novel is centered on Felix Hoenikker, a chemical scientist reminiscent of Robert Oppenheimer except that Oppenheimer was destroyed by his conscience and Hoenikker, delighting in the disastrous chemicals he has invented, has no conscience at all. Hoenikkers &quote;Ice 9&quote; has the potential to convert all liquid to inert ice and thus destroy human existence; he is exiled to a remote island where Boskonism has enlisted all of its inhabitants and where religion and technology collaborate, with the help of a large cast of characters, to destroy civilization.Vonneguts compassion and despair are expressed here through his grotesque elaboration of character and situation and also through his created religion which like Flannery OConnors &quote;Church Without Christ&quote; (in Wise Blood) acts to serve its adherents by removing them from individual responsibility. Vonnegut had always been taken seriously by science fiction readers and critics (a reception which indeed made him uncomfortable) but it was with Cats Cradle that he began to be found and appreciated by a more general audience. His own ambivalence toward science, science fiction, religion and religious comfort comes through in every scene of this novel.
