Vonnegut Is A Liar
Vonnegut promised he’d never write another book. Thankfully, he lied. The author of such Amercian classics as Breakfast of Champions and Slaughterhouse Five has brought back his sharp wit and unique perspective for one more look at life, art, politics and America in A Man Without a Country. The jacket sleeve says this book is “an intimiate and tender communication from one individual to his fellow Americans”. I don’t know about that, but it makes you laugh, cringe and shake your head in wonder as he expounds on his life as an author, the human condition and how his country has let him down. A wonderfully entertaining and quick read, it somehow felt like reading a long goodbye letter from your favourite goofy uncle.
