Eliot Rosewater is tortured by a fabulous inheritance he feels he does not deserve, so he devotes himself to drink, and to a life serving the dull, the ugly, the irrelevant and the useless. This is a novel about the pleasures, pains and perversions of people and money. It is the story of a millionaire's lunacy, the obsessions of a famous family and the collective madness of a nation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Vonnegut faces up to the less glamorous phenomenon of human mediocrity in this sharp, hilarious, boundlessly humane story. It taught me about compassion and a few things about writing good dialogue" -- Michel Faber * Glasgow Herald *
"Rumbustious stuff... There may be greater novelists than Vonnegut, but there can be a few, if any, with as much good humour and generosity" * Guardian *
"Filled with irony and black humour and a woozy bonhomie" * Sunday Times *
"Wild hilarity" * Sunday Telegraph *
"Extremely funny" * Observer *

“God Bless You, Mr.Rosewater”

Vonnegut at his cutting best. A satire full of velvet wit - a story of what people do with and without money, and what some will do to be nice! It's the story of our whole civilisation in one, thin volume. An... More
