"A madcap genealogical adventure . . . Vonnegut is a postmodern Mark Twain."--The New York Times Book Review

Gal pagos takes the reader back one million years, to A.D. 1986. A simple vacation cruise suddenly becomes an evolutionary journey. Thanks to an apocalypse, a small group of survivors stranded on the Gal pagos Islands are about to become the progenitors of a brave, new, and totally different human race. In this inimitable novel, America' s master satirist looks at our world and shows us all that is sadly, madly awry-and all that is worth saving.

Praise for Gal pagos

"The best Vonnegut novel yet "--John Irving

"Beautiful . . . provocative, arresting reading."--USA Today

"A satire in the classic tradition . . . a dark vision, a heartfelt warning."--The Detroit Free Press

"Interesting, engaging, sad and yet very funny . . . Vonnegut is still in top form. If he has no prescription for alleviating the pain of the human condition, at least he is a first-rate diagnostician."--Susan Isaacs, Newsday

"Dark . . . original and funny."--People

"A triumph of style, originality and warped yet consistent logic . . . a condensation, an evolution of Vonnegut's entire career, including all the issues and questions he has pursued relentlessly for four decades."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Wild details, wry humor, outrageous characters . . . Gal pagos is a comic lament, a sadly ironic vison."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A work of high comedy, sadness and imagination."--The Denver Post

"Wacky wit and irreverent imagination . . . and the full range of technical innovations have made Vonnegut] America's preeminent experimental novelist."--The Minneapolis Star and Tribune
