Summary
  • The story brings Kilgore Trout, the eccentric, aging, science-fiction writer to the Midland City Arts Festival of 1972 for an accidental but explosive meeting with Dwayne Hoover, a middle-aged Midwest Pontiac dealer who is going insane. Trout finds to his horror that Hoover is taking his fiction as truth. The result is murderously funny satire as Vonnegut looks at war, sex, racism, success, politics, and pollution in America and reminds us how to see the truth
  • The author questions the condition of modern man in this novel depicting a science fiction writer's struggle to find peace and sanity in the world
