Kurt Vonnegut: Letters, Paperback Book

Description

This collection of Vonnegut's letters is the autobiography he never wrote - from the letter he posted home upon being freed from a German POW camp, to notes of advice to his children: `Don't let anybody tell you that smoking and boozing are bad for you.

Here I am fifty-five years old, and I never felt better in my life'.

Peppered with insights, one-liners and missives to the likes of Norman Mailer, Gunter Grass and Bernard Malamud, Vonnegut is funny, wise and modest.

As he himself said: `I am an American fad-of a slightly higher order than the hula hoop'. Like Vonnegut's books, his letters make you think, they make you outraged and they make you laugh.

Written over a sixty-year period, and never published before, these letters are alive with the unique point of view that made Vonnegut one of the most original writers in American fiction.
