Kurt Vonnegut has surpassed even his own giddy heights of hilariously bitter irony in Bluebeard. It is a novel so funny and yet so terribly serious that you will read it - then reconsider your own life.


There can be few [novelists], if any, with as much good humour and generosity... As in many of Vonnegut's novels, the career of his central character matches his own at several crucial points, and this gives his amiable fictions their sharp sting of the real... A tour de force that Vonnegut handles in a masterly way.

Guardian - J. G. Ballard
