Overview

From one of the most original narrative writers of the 20th century comes an anthology of stories full of sharp humor, fierce social criticism, and strange, diverse characters. A crazy psychiatrist-turned-counselor to the families of murder victims concocts a cruel plot to make money off of the instincts of his paranoid patients; a family discovers the consequences of telling a magical invention their deepest secrets; and a man becomes trapped in a Kafkaesque world after he gets on the bad side of the boss who dominates the underworld of a small New York town. Published posthumously in 2009, these 14 pieces of literature embody Kurt Vonnegut’s direct and simple style and are accompanied by his signature line drawings.

De uno de los escritores más originales de la narrativa del siglo XX viene una antología de cuentos llenos de agudo humor, feroz crítica social y personajes extraños y diversos. Un psiquiatra embaucador que se convierte en un consejero de familias de víctimas de homicidio inventa una trama cruel para sacarle rédito a las pulsiones de sus pacientes paranoicos; una familia conoce las consecuencias de confiar sus secretos más íntimos a una mágica invención; y un hombre queda atrapado en un mundo kafkiano después de enfrentarse al jefe de los bajos mundos que domina el hampa en un pueblo del estado de Nueva York. Publicadas póstumamente en 2009, estas 14 piezas de literatura encarnan el estilo directo y simple de Kurt Vonnegut y son acompañadas de sus habituales dibujos de línea.
