Sometime just north of the midway point of the last century and somewhere in the northeastern region of America, there's great change in the air. In the city of Ilium, the Federal Forge & Foundry's headquarters is teeming with excitement as a new vice president arrives on the scene. Meanwhile, in the nearby town of Spruce Falls, this important executive has rented a home and the locals are thrilled with what this great industrialist could do for their little town. Well, maybe not all of them...
These two very different locations are inhabited with the unique, hilarious, touching characters for which Vonnegut is so well-known. The American mid-century landscape is the background for this "narrative anthology" of simple human tales that highlight the triumphs and pitfalls of progress as it storms across the country during its post-war industrial boom.
The incomparable voice of Kurt Vonnegut brings this world to life. This adaptation is extremely true to the original text so as not to sacrifice his unique storytelling style.
