Praise

Praise for Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus is the most topical, realistic Vonnegut novel to date…he is a satirist with a heart, a moralist with a whoopee cushion.”—Jay McInerney, The New York Times

“Vonnegut’s best novel in years—funny and prophetic, yes, and fabulous too, as cunning as Aesop and as gloomy as Grimm…He’s up to something special in Hocus Pocus.”—The Nation

“A king-sized relief valve of comedy. Every bit as humorous as Cat’s Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, Breakfast of Champions or any of Vonnegut’s other comic masterpieces…Vonnegut evokes the cynical chortle, the knowing grin, the inner laughter that soothes our troubled reflections…He’s mad as hell and laughing all the way to the apocalypse.”—Playboy

“His voice is one of the most original in popular American fiction…sharp-toothed satire…truly hilarious…Hocus Pocus is ample proof that his literary prestidigitation can still amuse and delight.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Irresistible…Hocus Pocus is vintage Vonnegut, witty, startling, satiric…off-the-wall brilliance. Vonnegut is a true original. Hocus Pocus is not only poignant and provocative, it is outrageous and very funny indeed. If Luck and Time are the two prime movers of the Universe, we are lucky in our time to have a Kurt Vonnegut to prod us, scold us, astonish us, unnerve us, entertain us and make us laugh.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer
