Praise

Praise for Bagombo Snuff Box

“These tales are worth reading; with the other early stories in Welcome to the Monkey House, they provide fans with the complete test-tube Vonnegut.”—Entertainment Weekly

“The stories…are snappy and often humorous, gentle even when sad. Some have trick endings—the early Vonnegut, he tells us, was an admirer of O. Henry. Most have morals. And the characters know what the morals are; the willingness of even the pretentious and deluded among them to learn from their comeuppances reflects a kind of optimism we dont’ expect from the author of Slaughterhouse-Five and Cat’s Cradle.”—Los Angeles Times

“An on-target, satisfying collection of quirky plot lines and rapidly developed characters who usually manage to rise above their ordinary stations and predicaments.”—Chicago Tribune
