Vonnegut Classics Trio

So it goes.

Vonnegut is known for his satire, his dry wit, and his ability to weave sentiment with detached cool. This set of three includes his most popular works, and provides a great introduction into the heart of one of our great Americans.

Start off with Cat’s Cradle, and bathe in the waters of Bokonism, a fictional religion that feels all too real. From there, enjoy the cutting commentary and vital philosophy of Slaughterhouse Five. There’s a reason it’s taught in high school and it’s not just because it’s funny. As for Welcome To The Monkey House, keep it in your pocket for when you need a boost. Its short stories provide similar wit and brilliance as Vonnegut’s novels, but in quick, easy 15-page increments.

Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle
Cat’s Cradle is a Vonnegut crowd favorite, and quickly hits all the bases to make it a satirical classic. No one is safe, and no one should be. Vonnegut’s apocalyptic tale of a man-made environmental catastrophe has never felt more relevant, and whether it’s Ice-9 (the McGuffin) or Bokonism (the religion invented by a calypso singer within the novels pages), Cat’s Cradle pulls no punches and we the readers are better for it.

Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse Five
Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five was selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time. It’s an American classic that transcends America, and an anti-war book worth fighting for. The events revolve around the firebombing of Dresden, but once you start reading you’ll see how silly it is to suggests that events can revolve at all. Bill Pilgrim becomes unstuck in time, and so do we. For that, we are thankful.

Kurt Vonnegut, Welcome to the Monkey House
These collected short stories were first published in 1968, and are as relevant and powerful today as they day they were written. In this new edition, multiple variant drafts of different stories are included for side-by-side comparison. An accompanying essay by Vonnegut scholar Gregory D. Sumner walks readers through Vonnegut’s writing process. But more important are the stories, these small gems you can hold in your hand, and the ideas that will embed themselves in your conscious, take root, and change you forever.
