Timequake's a mongrel; it is half novel, half memoir, the project of a decade's worth of writer's block, a book "that didn't want to be written." The premise is standard-issue Vonnegut: "...a timequake, a sudden glitch in the space-time continuum, made everybody and everything do exactly what they'd done during past decades, for good or ill, a second time..." Simultaneously, the author's favorite tricks are on display--frequent visits with the shopworn science fiction writer Kilgore Trout, a Hitchcockian appearance by the author at the book's end, and frequent authorial opining on love, war, and society.

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. "Kurt Vonnegut caps his mind-bending career of unconventional attitudes and fiction and lectures with this new book. While written in straightforward English, 'Timequake' is a literary form such as the world has never seen before. It has to be. The three protagonists are the author, and the unappreciated, long-out-of-print science fiction writer Kilgore Trout, who is the author's second self, and a seriously dysfunctional universe".(excerpt) Book is in very good condition. Spine is tight and pages are intact, bright and clean. No interior markings or missing pages. Dust jacket is in good condition. A seminal book by a seminal author!.
