Available to readers for the first time, La cartera del cretino is a collection of 7 pieces from Vonnegut, one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Sardonic and disturbing, these stories of fiction are the essence of Vonnegut, with biting satire and an infallible obscene meaning of life. Here, as in his best work, Vonnegut’s writing brings us to the darkest corners of the human soul and manages to remind us of our potential to be something bigger.
