Staff Reviews


Someone once said to me that Kurt Vonnegut writes children's books for adults. They meant it as a compliment, and I totally agree. His stories are often fantastical and funny, with a ton of heart at the center. This is my favorite of his books, and in my top 5 of all time. It's the story of Malachi Constant, who wanders into a vast conspiracy that takes him from Earth, to Mars, back to Earth, and to a moon of Saturn.

Description


“[Kurt Vonnegut’s] best book . . . He dares not only ask the ultimate question about the meaning of life, but to answer it.”—Esquire

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

The Sirens of Titan
is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there’ s a catch to the invitation–and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell.

“Reading Vonnegut is addictive!”—Commonweal

About the Author


Kurt Vonnegut’s humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America’s attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him as “a true artist” (The New York Times) with Cat’s Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, “one of the best living American writers.” Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.
