According to science-fiction writer Kilgore Trout, a global timequake will occur in New York City on 13th February 2001. It is the moment when the universe suffers a crisis of conscience. Should it expand or make a great big bang? It decides to wind the clock back a decade to 1991, making everyone in the world endure ten years of deja-vu and a total loss of free will - not to mention the torture of reliving every nanosecond of one of the tawdiest and most hollow decades. With his trademark wicked wit, Vonnegut addresses memory, suicide, the Great Depression, the loss of American eloquence, and the obsolescent thrill of reading books.

Utterly original...capable of moving from irony to lament within a sentence" Guardian "Reading Timequake... I feel privileged to have spent several hours in the company of a most genial, affable and upbeat soul indeed...a wise, winning and utterly charming concoction of fiction, commentary and autobiography" Literary Review "Timequake is sweet, wild and cock-eyed... Vonnegut has always had a true comic ear... A beautifully fastidious writer, utterly original" Guardian "Fascinating digressions, epigrams and memories, vitalised by Vonnegut;s irrepressible intelligence and comic imagination, creating a movingly intimate work" Harpers & Queen "Highly entertaining... The portraits of Vonnegut's first wife, brother and sister are beautiful, sharp, critical, loving" New York Times Book Review
