Deadeye Dick is Kurt Vonnegutâs funny, chillingly satirical look at the death of innocence. Amid a true Vonnegutian host of horrorsâa double murder, a fatal dose of radioactivity, a decapitation, an annihilation of a city by a neutron bombâRudy Waltz, aka Deadeye Dick, takes us along on a zany search for absolution and happiness. Here is a tale of crime and punishment that makes us rethink what we believe . . . and who we say we are.
Praise for Deadeye Dick
âA moving fable . . . Vonnegut, sweet cynic and ugly duckling, continues to write gentle swan songs for our uncivil society.ââPlayboyÂ
âA brilliantly unconventional novel . . . a must for all Vonnegut fans.ââWorcester Sunday Telegram
âHits the bullâs-eye . . . dolefully celebrates the randomness of life, treating private and public disasters with a kind of reckless whimsy. . . . You donât read Kurt Vonnegut for meaning exactly. You read him for the sad-funny attitude of mind, the kind of weirdness that can interpret the worldâs weirdness.ââUSA Today
âVonnegut is beguiling as ever . . . Incredible plot constructions and inventive language continue to leap from his typewriter . . . the humor is natural and inborn; the insight usually purchased by his characters at painfully high cost. Funny how life turns out. Even funnier how Mr. Vonnegut turns lifeâs insanities into funny, profound sense. That takes a masterâs touch. Mr. Vonnegut still has it.ââKansas City Star
âPlayful and imaginative . . . On finishing the novel, the kitchen of your mind is a cleaner and more well-lighted place than it was before.ââHouston Chronicle
âEndearing and enchanting . . . a wise and charming book . . . very full of life.ââGlamour
