  • "Le lieutenant américain Slothrop a été conditionné dès l'enfance pour connaître des érections à l'endroit où des explosions vont avoir lieu. La carte de ses exploits sexuels anticipe légèrement celle des missiles V2 et de leur impact."
  • "Self-destruction and human suffering are the central themes in this novel about man and war."
  • "In war-torn England, WWII U.S. soldier Lieutenant Tyrone Slothrop is targeted by British intelligence. His map of sexual conquests exactly matches the map created by locations of recent German rocket bombs. Slothrop flees the suspicious superpowers in an attempt to find the mysterious Rocket 00000, which may hold the answers."
  • "Tyrone Slothrop, a GI in London in 1944, has a big problem. Whenever he gets an erection, a Blitz bomb hits. Slothrop gets excited, and then, "a screaming comes across the sky," heralding an angel of death, a V-2 rocket. Soon Tyrone is on the run from legions of bizarre enemies through the phantasmagoric horrors of Germany."@en
  • "An American Lieutenant stationed in London during the Blitz has a bizarre ability."
  • "Winner of the 1974 National Book Award "A screaming comes across the sky. . ." A few months after the Germans' secret V-2 rocket bombs begin falling on London, British Intelligence discovers that a map of the city pinpointing the sexual conquests of one Lieutenant Tyrone Slothrop, U.S. Army, corresponds identically to a map showing the V-2 impact sites. The implications of this discovery will launch Slothrop on an amazing journey across war-torn Europe, fleeing an international cabal of military-industrial superpowers, in search of the mysterious Rocket 00000, through a wildly comic extravaganza that has been hailed in The New Republic as "the most profound and accomplished American novel since the end of World War II.""@en
