Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut was born on November 11, 1922 in Indianapolis. He studied at the universities of Chicago and Tennessee and later began to write short stories for magazines. His first novel, Player Piano, was published in 1951 and since then he has written many novels, among them: The Sirens of Titan, Mother Night, Cat's Cradle, God Bless You Mr Rosewater, Welcome to the Monkey House; a collection of short stories, Breakfast of Champions, Slapstick, or Lonesome No More, Jailbird, Deadeye Dick, Galapagos, Bluebeard and Hocus Pocus.

During the Second World War he was held prisoner in Germany and was present at the bombing of Dresden, an experience which provided the setting for his most famous work to date, Slaughterhouse Five.

Samenvatting

A New York Times Bestseller

A Man Without a Country is Kurt Vonnegut's hilariously funny and razor-sharp look at life (''If I die—God forbid—I would like to go to heaven to ask somebody in charge up there, "Hey, what was the good news and what was the bad news?''), art (''To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.''), politics (''I asked former Yankees pitcher Jim Bouton what he thought of our great victory over Iraq and he said, "Mohammed Ali versus Mr. Rogers.'''), and the condition of the soul of America today (''What has happened to us?'').
Based on short essays and speeches composed over the last five years and plentifully illustrated with artwork by the author throughout, A Man Without a Country gives us Vonnegut both speaking out with indignation and writing tenderly to his fellow Americans, sometimes joking, at other times hopeless, always searching.
