"Ranks with Vonnegut's best and goes one step beyond . . . joyous, soaring fiction."--The Atlanta Journal
Broad humor and bitter irony collide in this fictional autobiography of Rabo Karabekian, who, at age seventy-one, wants to be left alone on his Long Island estate with the secret he has locked inside his potato barn. But then a voluptuous young widow badgers Rabo into telling his life story--and Vonnegut in turn tells us the plain, heart-hammering truth about man's careless fancy to create or destroy what he loves.

"[Kurt Vonnegut is] a voice you can trust to keep poking holes in the social fabric."--San Francisco Chronicle
