Nao ju 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
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. An engineer, Paul Proteus, leads a human revolt against the machines which control life--a revolt 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

In teeming Victorian London, where lavish wealth and appalling poverty live side by side, Edward Pierce charms the most prominent of the well-to-do as he cunningly orchestrates the crime of the century.

Based on fact, as lively as legend, and studded with all the suspense and style of a modern fiction master, here is a classic caper novel set a decade before the age of dynamite--yet nonetheless explosive
