Kurt Vonnegut is a master of contemporary American Literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him as a "true artist" (The New York Times) with Cat's Cradle in 1963. He is, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers".Welcome to the Monkey House is a collection of Kurt Vonnegut's shorter works. Originally printed in publications as diverse as The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and The Atlantic Monthly, what these superb stories share is Vonnegut's audacious sense of humor and extraordinary range of creative vision.

Varied and engaging - so much more then sci fi

This is an excellent short story collection beautifully performed by several readers.
The sci fi stories are the best ones, but there are more stories about everyday people and situations. Many of the stories conjure up a real feel for the 1950's and 60's, including the Kennedys, Marilyn Monroe, sleezey jazz clubs, teenage rebelion and Cold War paranioa; I am not usually drawn to that kind of thing but this collection had me hooked.
