Description

Prisoner of war, optometrist, time-traveller - these are the life roles of Billy Pilgrim, hero of this miraculously moving, bitter and funny story of innocence faced with apocalypse. Slaughterhouse 5 is one of the world's great anti-war books. Centring on the infamous fire-bombing of Dresden in the Second World War, Billy Pilgrim's odyssey through time reflects the journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we are afraid to know.

Reviews

"Marvellous...the writing is pungent, the antics uproarious, the wit as sharp as a hypodermic needle" Daily Telegraph "A work of keen literary artistry" -- Joseph Heller "The individuality of Vonnegut's style is a curious yet perfect match for the pain of the emotional content. A humane, human book that always remains a work of art rather than biography, no matter how apparent the author's presence" -- Kate Atkinson "A laughing prophet of doom" New York Times "Unique" -- Doris Lessing
