This book is still in the original publishers shrinkwrap. Slapstick is often cited as being one of the finest novels of the twentieth century. Vonnegut's incredible gift for finding the farcical in even the most horrific situation is on full display here. The novel irreverently tackles the pain of human loneliness, mocks organized religion, and boldly criticizes marriage, love, patriotism, and the ruling class system. Truly, Vonnegut is the master of dark comedy! This volume is brand-new and has never been read. It is in as new condition. This beautiful book is bound in full-tooled leather with satin moiré endpapers, satin ribbon bookmark, and 22kt gold on the spine. The paper was made especially for this edition. The leather was cut entirely by hand. It includes a certificate of authenticity and a 4x6 card laid in with biographical information as well as a few words about the book itself. The certificate of authenticity is also signed by Kurt Vonnegut. It is a volume of heirloom quality and will be treasured for generations to come. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
