Player Piano: A Novel
"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.

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