About the Author

Kurt Vonnegut's black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured Americas attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" (The New York Times) with Cats Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, "one of the best living American writers." Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.
