Cronomoto is a jolt in time, a phenomenon of disturbance in the timeline described by Kilgore Trout, both character and alter ego of the author. Vonnegut is dealing with dwindling time to deal with issues fundamental: free will, extended family as the basis of social happiness, rejection of violence, the search for simple ideology, and love, especially love, as the axis of each and every human activity. Cronomoto is a collage of anecdotes, fragments of stories, memories, and personal impressions.
