Cat's Cradle

Cat's Cradle Chapter 70 Summary

Tutored by Bokonon

  • Cliffhanger resolved. The dude's Philip Castle. Surprise!
  • Philip asks if John's a drug salesman, but John must admit he's only a writer.
  • Next best thing then. Philip wants to know if John's ever written anything that could help people "who are dying or in terrible pain" (70.10).
  • John suggests he might be able to rework Psalm 23.
  • Philip mentions Bokonon, and John wonders if he knows the prophet.
  • He sure does. As the chapter title might suggest, Philip and Mona were both tutored by Bokonon.
