Product description

About the Author

Kurt Vonnegut is a unique voice in the American canon -- a writer whose works are hard to categorize, often straddling the space between literature and science fiction, and filled with cutting satire and dark humor. Like Mark Twain before him, Vonnegut's reputation and impact on American writing and reading will continue to grow steadily and increase in relevance as new insights are made. Vonnegut was born in 1922 in Indianapolis, and studied at the University of Chicago and the University of Tennessee. In the Second World War, he became a German prisoner of war and was present during the bombing of Dresden. This experience provided inspiration for his most successful and influential novel, Slaughterhouse-Five. Vonnegut -- admired as much for his views and his "Vonnegutisms" as for his publications -- wrote extensively in many forms, including novels, short stories, essays, plays, articles, speeches, and correspondence, some of which was published posthumously. --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.

Review

Brilliant... It seems, at times, as if Voltaire has returned to satirise the horrors of plastic, disposable America * Sunday Times * Outrageous, witty, thought-provoking, unputdownable, scintillating, invigorating, ennobling, enlightening and masterly * Spectator * A great deal of wit and playfulness...an entire universe of disorder is distilled * Guardian * He's just so fucking amazing. Everyone should read Vonnegut. Vonnegut performs considerable complex magic... Fresh, funny, outrageous...he very nearly levitates * New York Times * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
