#DailyBookQuote 22Oct13 : Kurt Vonnegut’s The Sirens of Titan

#DailyBookQuote : 22nd October 2013

 Kurt Vonnegut

–          Kurt Vonnegut (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007)

–          Kurt Vonnegut’s The Sirens of Titan

The Sirens of Titan is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there’s a catch to the invitation, and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell. According to The Harvard Crimson, Vonnegut put together the whole of The Sirens of Titan in one night. He was at a party where someone told him he ought to write another novel. So they went into the next room where he just verbally pieced together this book from the things that were around in his mind.
