A diabolical government asserts control by eliminating orgasm from sex in the title story of Welcome to the Monkey House - setting the tone for a collection shot through with Vonnegut's acrid wit, and his bewilderment at the corruption of humanity. From riffs on country music, George Bush, and his mother's midnight mania, to a bitter-sweet tribute to a dead friend, Palm Sunday demonstrates why Kurt Vonnegut is equally well known as an essayist and commentator as he is a novelist. This caustic, funny and poignant collection resonates with Vonnegut's singular voice.
"Vonnegut's sharp wit and intellect are tempered but not blunted by his honesty and humanity" Independent "These taut, concise stories show us the roots of a great Rube Goldberg literary career" Los Angeles Times "Wonderfully wicked" Washington Post "Twisted, funny, sci-fi and high-concept. It's a great, great book" -- Rebecca Romijin-Stamos Independent "A brilliant wacky ideas-monger" Observer
