An ambitious builder of roads fritters away his free time with miniature trains—until the women in his life crash his fantasy land. Trapped in a stenography pool, a young dreamer receives a call from a robber on the run, who presents her with a strange proposition. A crusty newspaperman is forced onto a committee to judge Christmas displays—a job that leads him to a suspiciously ostentatious ex-con and then a miracle. Featuring a Foreword by Dave Eggers, «While Mortals Sleep» is a poignant reflection of our world as it is and as it could be.
Praise for While Mortals Sleep
«Immensely readable and thoroughly entertaining.»—The Washington Post
«Taut, concise . . . The stories set themselves up with neat swiftness, proceed at a clip, and shut down with equal speed, [showing Vonnegut] honing his skills in structure and satire.»—Los Angeles Times
«A lovely reminder of the mischievous moral voice we lost when we lost Kurt Vonnegut.»—San Francisco Chronicle
«These stories were all good when they were written decades ago, but many strike me as great now. Never has the voice of Kurt Vonnegut, humanist and humorist, been more relevant.»—The Seattle Times
«There’s something distinctly timeless about Vonnegut’s vision.»—Minneapolis Star-Tribune
