• Although it is set in the near future, Hocus Pocus is the most topical, realistic Vonnegut novel to date, and shows the struggle of an artist a little impatient with allegory and more than a little impatient with his own country

    New York Times Book Review
  • Vonnegut's best novel in years-funny and prophetic...something special

    The Nation
  • Hocus Pocus is, of course, extremely funny. Jokes are told, deadpan and whiplash-sharp; neat, compulsive little anecdotes with stings in the tail jostle one another down the page

    Sunday Correspondent
  • "It is all done with voice. Vonnegut is a master of the first-person, manic-depressive stand-up"
