Slaughterhouse-Five

Montana Wildhack

Character Analysis

Montana Wildhack is a hot twenty-year-old actress whom the Tralfamadorians pair Billy with in their zoo. After a gentlemanly week of waiting, Billy has sex with her and the two conceive a baby. While Billy is in New York trying to tell the world about time and Tralfamadore, he imagines Montana back in the zoo nursing their six-month-old baby. Montana appears to be a complete fantasy for Billy, a totally understanding and attractive woman who demands no real strings.
