Le cri de l'engoulevent dans Manhattan désert by Kurt Vonnegut ( Book )
4 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in Czech and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vonnegut définit ainsi son roman: "une histoire sur les villes à l'abandon et le cannibalisme spirituel et l'inceste et la solitude et l'absence d'amour et la mort et le reste". Il s'agit plus précisément d'un "essaifiction" à mi-chemin entre la littérature d'anticipation (la politique-fiction) et le recueil de pensées, avec une forte composante autobiographique et une bonne dose d'humour noir et paisible. Accessible aux grands adolescents

Meet Ignatius J. Reilly, a 30-year-old medievalist who lives at home with his mother in New Orleans, and pens his magnum opus on Big Chief writing pads he keeps hidden under his bed. Considered by many a comic masterpiece that memorably evokes the city of New Orleans and whose robust protagonist is a modern-day Falstaff, Don Quixote, or Gargantua; other are not amused by a fat, flatulent, gluttonous, loud, lying, hypocritical, self-deceiving, self-centered blowhard who masturbates to memories of a dog
Player piano by Kurt Vonnegut ( Book )
5 editions published between 1979 and 2000 in Czech and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vonnegut's first novel, an unforgiving portrait of an automated and totalitarian future, was published in 1952. A human revolt against the machines which control life was arranged by the machines themselves to prove the futility of such resistance. Visionary and unrelenting, this is felt by some critics to be Vonnegut's best and most original novel
