Publisher's Summary

American Howard W. Campbell, Jr., a spy during World War II, is now on trial in Israel as a Nazi war criminal. But is he really guilty? In this brilliant book rife with true gallows humor, Kurt Vonnegut turns black and white into a chilling shade of grey with a verdict that will haunt us all. Mother Night is a daring challenge to our moral sense.
As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Kurt Vonnegut's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Gay Talese about the life and work of Kurt Vonnegut – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.


What the Critics Say

"Vonnegut is George Orwell, Dr. Caligari and Flash Gordon compounded into one writer...a zany but moral mad scientist." (Time)

German anyone???

What didn’t you like about Victor Bevine’s performance?

I like Victor Bevine's voice and tone but the producers should have selected a narrator with some knowledge of the German language. Bevine reads the many single words and whole sentences written in German with such an accent that makes my stomach churn every time. It's quite clear he doesn't know what he is reading. This spoiled the experience for me and as much as I love Vonnegut I can't forget how badly this was read.

The Wrong Narrator.

Any additional comments?

In places you could be forgiven for thinking your were listening to an episode of 'Allo 'Allo.
Some people insist that Vonnegut should be read and not listened to. Perhaps this recording is the reason why. If this was your first experience of Vonnegut please do not give up.

(If you want to hear some excellent work from Mr Bevine try The Fall of Hyperion)
