BeschreibungIn this revealing collection of essays, Vonnegut examines the issues and events (both personal and social) that shaped the last decade. Ranging from an intimate portrait of his family to a biting commentary of ex-son-in-law Geraldo Rivera to the 1945 firebombing of Dresden, Germany, where he was a POW, this book "offers a rare insight into an author who has customarily hidden his heart" (New York Times).
PortraitKurt Vonnegut, one of the most acclaimed American writers of the past century, died in New York City on April 11, 2007. He was the "New York Times" bestselling author of fourteen novels, including such literary classics as "Slaughterhouse-Five," "Cat's Cradle" and "God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater." Penguin Group (USA) was fortunate to publish several of Mr. Vonnegut's books, including the novels "Timequake" and "Hocus Pocus" as well as a collection of short fiction, "Bagombo Snuff Box."
