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

Welcome to the Monkey House is a collection of Kurt Vonnegut's shorter works. Originally printed in publications as diverse as The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and The Atlantic Monthly, what these superb stories share is Vonnegut's audacious sense of humor and extraordinary range of creative vision.

A delightful compendium of shorts by a master. A nice light read but very thought provoking. My favourite story was Unready to Wear, a tale about "amphibians", humans who have managed to free themselves from the body and all of it's restrictions.

I've just checked out Breakfast of Champions and looking forward to that read.
