Kurt Vonnegut Jr. was known for blending satire, black comedy, and science fiction, and that is exactly what he does in this story. It was written in 1954 and first appeared in Galaxy Science Fitcion. In the chronology of his works, it came between Player Piano and The Sirens of Titan.
The story takes place in a future in which the population has grown so huge, due to an anti-aging product, that generations are forced to live together in crowded apartments. The family in this story is ruled by a dictitorial grandfather, the owner of the apartment and oldest of the clan.
