Slapstick or Lonesome No More
by Kurt Vonnegut
Slapstick presents an apocalyptic vision as seen through the eyes of the current King of Manhattan (and last President of the United States), a wickedly irreverent look at the all-too-possible results of today’s follies. But even the end of life-as-we-know-it is transformed by Kurt Vonnegut’s pen into hilarious farcea final slapstick that may be the Almighty’s joke on us all. From the Trade Paperback edition.
