"A funny, savage appraisal of a totally automated American society of the future."--San Francisco Chronicle

Kurt Vonnegut's first novel spins the chilling tale of engineer Paul Proteus, who must find a way to live in a world dominated by a supercomputer and run completely by machines. Paul's rebellion is vintage Vonnegut--wildly funny, deadly serious, and terrifyingly close to reality.

Praise for Player Piano

"An exuberant, crackling style . . . Vonnegut is a black humorist, fantasist and satirist, a man disposed to deep and comic reflection on the human dilemma."--Life

"His black logic . . . gives us something to laugh about and much to fear."--The New York Times Book Review
