Cat's Cradle Chapter 48 Summary
Just Like Saint Augustine
- And deeper into the book we go.
- Bokonon was originally a man named Lionel Boyd Johnson. He is the youngest of six children in a family who made their fortune by reinvesting a lost treasure of Blackbeard.
- No, seriously, that's the start of this guy's history.
- Like Saint Augustine, he spent his youth enjoying the ladies and the drink.
- Oh, he wrote a Calypso about that too.
