Manhattan has become the Island of Death. The former President of the United States stands barefoot in a purple toga around a cooking fire in the lobby of the Empire State Building. He is Dr Wilbur Daffodil-II Swain and Slapstick or Lonesome No More! is his story - one of monstrous twins, orgies, revenge, golf, utopian schemes, and very little tooth brushing. In this post-apocalyptic black comedy - dedicated to Laurel and Hardy - Vonnegut is at his most hilarious, grotesque, and personal.
"The non-stop invention, the jokes and clowning are in the familiar Vonnegut tradition" * Daily Telegraph * "Wittily and engagingly written " * Guardian * "A brilliant wacky ideas-monger" * Observer * "A cool writer, at once throwaway and passionate and very funny" * Financial Times * "One of the master alchemists of modern American fiction" * Sunday Times *
