About This Item

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1990. First Edition. Limited Issue, one of 250 numbered copies specially bound and signed by the author, this being copy no.22. Octavo (23.5cm); orange cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in gilt on spine and front cover; publisher's beige canvas cloth slipcase; 302, [2]pp. Fine in a Fine slipcase, without dustjacket, as issued. A retrospective first-person narrative in which several time and story lines gradually converge. Told by one Eugene Debs Hartke, and purportedly written in prison on scraps of paper, each scrap a thought, story, or digression unto itself.

Synopsis

From the author of Timequake, this "irresistible" novel (Cleveland Plain Dealer) tells the story of Eugene Debs Hartke-Vietnam veteran, jazz pianist, college professor, and prognosticator of the apocalypse. It's "Vonnegut's best novel in years-funny and prophetic...something special." (The Nation)
