Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 JimBouton 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 onshort 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 writingtenderly to his fellow Americans, sometimes joking, at other times hopeless, always searching.

Synopsis:

In a collection of brief autobiographical essays, the renowned novelist offers his views on art, politics, and everyday life in America.
