The Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut

The novel is a satirical depiction of American society, with a particular focus on its materialism, business culture, and obsession with success. It tells the story of two men: Dwayne Hoover, a wealthy businessman who is gradually losing his sanity, and Kilgore Trout, a largely unsuccessful science fiction writer. Their lives intersect in a series of absurd, tragicomic events, leading to a climax that forces the reader to question the nature of free will and the meaning of life. The narrative is punctuated by the author's own illustrations and frequent digressions on a wide range of topics.
