"[Vonnegut] at his wildest best."-- The New York Times Book Review

Eliot Rosewater--drunk, volunteer fireman, and President of the fabulously rich Rosewater Foundation--is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature . . . with a little help from writer Kilgore Trout. God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is Kurt Vonnegut's funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.

"A brilliantly funny satire on almost everything."--Conrad Aiken

"[Vonnegut was] our finest black humorist. . . . We laugh in self-defense."-- The Atlantic Monthly
