In a volume that is penetrating, introspective, incisive, and laugh-out-loud funny, one of the great men of letters of this ageâor any ageâholds forth on life, art, sex, politics, and the state of Americaâs soul. From his coming of age in America, to his formative war experiences, to his life as an artist, this is Vonnegut doing what he does best: Being himself. Whimsically illustrated by the author, A Man Without a Country is intimate, tender, and brimming with the scope of Kurt Vonnegutâs passions.
Praise for A Man Without a Country
â[This] may be as close as Vonnegut ever comes to a memoir.ââLos Angeles Times
âLike [that of] his literary ancestor Mark Twain, [Kurt Vonnegutâs] crankiness is good-humored and sharp-witted. . . . [ReadingÂ A Man Without a CountryÂ is] like sitting down on the couch for a long chat with an old friend.ââThe New York Times Book Review
âFilled with [Vonnegutâs] usual contradictory mix of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, humor and gravity.ââChicago Tribune
âFans will linger on every word . . . as once again [Vonnegut] captures the complexity of the human condition with stunning calligraphic simplicity.ââThe Australian
âThank God, Kurt Vonnegut has broken his promise that he will never write another book. In this wondrous assemblage of mini-memoirs, we discover his familyâs legacy and his obstinate, unfashionable humanism.ââStuds Terkel
