Description - Welcome To The Monkey House and Palm Sunday by Kurt Vonnegut

A diabolical government asserts control by eliminating orgasms 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 bittersweet 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.
