Abstract:

"His best book', Esquire wrote of Kurt Vonnegut?s 1959 novel The Sirens of Titan, adding, 'he dares not only to ask the ultimate question about the meaning of life, but to answer it.' This novel fits into that aspect of the Vonnegut canon that might be classified as science fiction, a quality that once led Time to describe Vonnegut as 'George Orwell, Dr. Caligari and Flash Gordon compounded into one writer ... a zany but moral mad scientist."
