For he is the inventor of ice-nine, a lethal chemical capable of freezing the entire planet. Writer Jonah s search for his whereabouts leads him to Hoenikker s three eccentric children, to an island republic in the Caribbean where the absurd religion of Bokononism is practised, to love and to insanity. Told with deadpan humour and bitter irony, Kurt Vonnegut s cult tale of global destruction is a frightening and funny satire on the end of the world and the madness of mankind.Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) was born in Indianapolis. During the Second World War he was a prisoner in Germany and present at the bombing of Dresden, an experience he recounted in his famous novel Slaughterhouse Five (1969).

About this Item: Bowes & Bowes, London, 1962. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. Yevgeny Ivanovich Zamyatin (February 1, 1884 - March 10, 1937) was a Russian author, most famous for his 1921 novel We, a story of dystopian future which influenced George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, Ayn Rand's Anthem, Ursula Le Guin’s The Dispossessed and, indirectly, Kurt Vonnegut's Player Piano. Zamyatin was born in Lebedyan, two hundred miles south of Moscow. His father was a Russian Orthodox priest and schoolmaster, and his mother a musician. He may have had synesthesia as he gave letters and sounds qualities. To Zamyatin "L" was pale, cold and light blue. He studied naval engineering in Saint Petersburg from 1902 until 1908, during which time he joined the Bolsheviks. He was arrested during the Russian Revolution of 1905 and exiled, but returned to Saint Petersburg where he lived illegally before moving to Finland in 1906 to finish his studies. After returning to Russia, he began to write fiction as a hobby. He was arrested and exiled a second time in 1911, but amnestied in 1913. His Uyezdnoye (A Provincial Tale) in 1913, which satirized life in a small Russian town, brought him a degree of fame. The next year he was tried for maligning the military in his story Na Kuhlihchkakh. He continued to contribute articles to various socialist newspapers. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Ex-Library.

About this Item: Penguin Classics, 2008. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neu Neuware, Importqualität, auf Lager, Versand per Büchersendung - With his trademark dry wit, Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle is an inventive science fiction satire that preys on our deepest fears of witnessing Armageddon - and, worse still, surviving it. This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Benjamin Kunkel. Dr Felix Hoenikker, one of the founding 'fathers' of the atomic bomb, has left a deadly legacy to humanity. For he is the inventor of ice-nine , a lethal chemical capable of freezing the entire planet. Writer Jonah's search for his whereabouts leads him to Hoenikker's three eccentric children, to an island republic in the Caribbean where the absurd religion of Bokononism is practised, to love and to insanity. Told with deadpan humour and bitter irony, Kurt Vonnegut's cult tale of global destruction is a frightening and funny satire on the end of the world and the madness of mankind. Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) was born in Indianapolis. During the Second World War he was a prisoner in Germany and present at the bombing of Dresden, an experience he recounted in his famous novel Slaughterhouse Five (1969). His first novel, Player Piano , was published in 1951 and since then he has written many novels, including The Sirens of Titan, Jailbird, Deadeye Dick, Galapagos and Hocus Pocus . If you enjoyed Cat's Cradle , you might like Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle , also available in Penguin Modern Classics. 'One of the warmest, wisest, funniest voices to be found anywhere in fiction' Sam Leith, Daily Telegraph 'A free-wheeling vehicle . An unforgettable ride!' The New York Times 'Vonnegut looked the world straight in the eye and never flinched' J.G. Ballard 224 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # INF1000425891

About this Item: Holt Rinehart Winston, New York, 1966. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Hardcover with dustjacket; $4.95 price present on dj. New Edition stated, no indication of later printing. Collectible second hardcover trade edition of Vonnegut's first book. Clean, straight copy, with a couple old pencil prices inside; one bump that has split the paper of the back board at the top (1/3"); light edge wear on the dust jacket, which also has some light waviness--since there's no evidence of water, I suspect the waviness is from many years in a palstic jacket protector. Overall about VG/VG condition: still a nice copy. Seller Inventory # 000039
