Breakfast of Champions

A Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In Breakfast of Champions, one of Kurt Vonnegut’s  most beloved characters, the aging writer Kilgore Trout, finds to his horror that a Midwest car dealer is taking his fiction as truth. What follows is murderously funny satire, as Vonnegut looks at war, sex, racism, success, politics, and pollution in America and reminds us how to see the truth.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

100 Words or Less

A testament to its greatness is that … well … it’s indescribable.

What’s the plot? Um … well ….

Who are the characters? Well … yeah, it’s kinda hard to say. Um… the narrator is both a character and the author. Nothing really happens, yet so much goes on. Oh, sections will make you laugh out loud because they’re so stupid, except it somehow reaches the core of humanity. I mean, not only physically, but on a metaphysical sense. Even an alternative universe sort of way.

Okay, now I’m babbling. But trust me, it’s all that and so much more.

Hard to follow Slaughterhouse Five

Probably the weakest of his satirical novels.
