The Big Trip Up Yonder is the story of Gramps Ford, 172 years old in this year 2185 AD, & his large acrimonious clan that shares a 3 room apartment.
If it was good enough for your grandfather, forget it ... it is much too good for anyone else!
Gramps Ford, his chin resting on his hands, his hands on the crook of his cane, was staring irascibly at the five-foot television screen that dominated the room. On the screen, a news commentator was summarizing the day's happenings. Every thirty seconds or so, Gramps would jab the floor with his cane-tip and shout, "Hell, we did that a hundred years ago!"

About the Author
Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) made his mark with his brilliant antiwar novel Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), published during the height of the protests against the Vietnam War. But he endured as a purveyor of mind-warping, surreal fiction that just so happened to be funny. In a career spanning over 50 years and numerous books, he published fourteen novels, including Breakfast of Champions and Cat's Cradle, three short story collections, five plays, and five works of non-fiction.
