Armageddon in Retrospect, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


First published on the anniversary of Kurt Vonnegut's death, Armageddon in Retrospect is a collection of twelve new writings - a fitting tribute to the author, and an essential contribution to the discussion of war, peace and humanity's tendency towards violence.

Imbued with Vonnegut's trademark rueful humour, the pieces range from a visceral non-fiction recollection of the destruction of Dresden - to a painfully funny short story about three soldiers and their fantasies of the perfect meal.

I read this while on holiday in France. Some have questioned whether some of Vonnegut's oeuvre was unpublished for a reason and should have remained out of the public sphere, but I found this collection of musings on war and it's relation to peace compelling.
