Timequake's a mongrel; it is half novel, half memoir, the project of a decade's worth of writer's block, a book "that didn't want to be written." The premise is standard-issue Vonnegut: "...a timequake, a sudden glitch in the space-time continuum, made everybody and everything do exactly what they'd done during past decades, for good or ill, a second time..." Simultaneously, the author's favorite tricks are on display--frequent visits with the shopworn science fiction writer Kilgore Trout, a Hitchcockian appearance by the author at the book's end, and frequent authorial opining on love, war, and society. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I have a love-hate relationship with Vonnegut. Interesting introspective work. Don't believe anything he ever states as fact. Vonnegut fans should read it for sure... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Zachary P. Stewart

I love reading Kurt Vonnegut! He writes things in such a way that make you say, "Yeah, I always thought that, but never knew how to put it into words." A clever read.Published 8 months ago by B
