Offers a collection of twelve writings - a fitting tribute to the author, and an essential contribution to the discussion of war, peace and humanity's tendency towards violence. A posthumous collection of previously unpublished writings on war and peace by the literary legend and profoundly humane humorist. These twenty-three previously uncollected stories form veritable vignettes of American life drawn from Vonnegut's WWII experiences and the resolute optimism of America after the war. This work ranks with Vonnegut's most imaginative works.
Broad humor and bitter irony collide in this fictional autobiography of Rabo Karabekian, who, at sevenyt-one, wants to be left alone at his Long Island estate with the secret he has locked iside his potato barn. But then a voluptuous widow badgers him into telling his life story - and Vonnegut tells the plain, heart-hammering truths about man's careless fancy to create or destory what he loves. One of Vonnegut's favorite characters, the aging writer Kilgore Trout, finds to his horror that a Midwest car dealer is taking his fiction as truth.
The result is murderously funny satire as Vonnegut looks at war, sex, racism, success,politics, and pollution in America and reminds readers how to see the truth. Combines science fiction, memoir, parable, fairy tale and farce. Vonnegut's satirical commentary on modern man and his madness, the book is an apocalyptic tale of Earth's ultimate fate. It features a midget as the protagonist; a complete original theology created by a calypso singer; and a vision ofthe future that is at once totally fatalistic and hilariously funny.
