Book Description:

With quirky characters, genre-defying stories, and a beguiling mix of the familiar and the bizarre, Kurt Vonnegut evolved from the counterculture hero to the bestseller list. Yet one of the most consistent and powerful themes running through his work—a belief that Darwin's theory of evolution is America's core mythology—has never fully been explored.

About the Author:
