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. He has also published a volume of autobiography entitled Palm Sunday and a collection of essays and speeches, Fates Worse Than Death. Mr. Vonnegut passed away on April 11, 2007.

Samenvatting

This is vintage Vonnegut: short stories never-before collected or published in book form. They are from the era of the Golden Age of magazines: a pre-television time when publications such as The Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, Argosy, and others reigned supreme as Americans' entertainment choice.Before that Golden Age drew to a close half a century ago, a young PR man at General Electric sold his first short story to one of the publications. By the time he'd sold his third, Vonnegut quit GE to join the likes of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner to write short stories at fifteen-hundred dollars a piece.Vonnegut himself has selected the best of these early stories for this audio collection, and has written a new preface and afterword for the occasion. Now listeners can relive the genesis of the master. Stories such as ''Cruise of the Jolly Roger,'' ''The Powder Blue Dragon,'' ''Hal Irwin's Magic Lamp,'' and ''Bagombo Snuff Box'' return us to the beginning of a literary voice that's sure to endure forever. Bagombo Snuff Box, the missing pieces of the master's collection, is a ready-made classic for Vonnegut fans new and old.
