  • Novels and Stories, 1963-1973

    By Kurt Vonnegut

    Our Price: $40.00
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9781598530988
    • Publisher: Library of America
    • Published: April 2011
    This volume, the first in what will be a multi-volume edition of Kurt Vonnegut’s enduring fiction, captures the satirist/moralist at the pyrotechnic heights of his powers. It opens with Cat’s Cradle (1963), in which a would-be historian of the bombing of Hiroshima finds himself a privileged witness to the icy end of the world. God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater (1965) chronicles the alcoholic unraveling and spiritual rebirth of a good-hearted dreamer tormented by the question “What are people for?” Slaughterhouse-Five (1969) – the book that earned Vonnegut worldwide fame, and one of the great anti-war novels in literature – is the jump-cutting saga of Billy Pilgrim, who, having come unstuck in time, is doomed to relive continually both the destruction of Dresden and his abduction by space aliens. And in a text enhanced by the author’s spirited line drawings, Breakfast of Champions (1973) describes the fateful meeting of a luckless science-fiction writer and an unhinged Pontiac dealer who disastrously believes that everyone but himself is a robot. Rounding out the volume are three short stories – including the classic fantasy “Welcome to the Monkey House” – and moving autobiographical accounts of Vonnegut’s experience of war that shed light on events imaginatively treated in Slaughterhouse-Five. Notes. 851p.

    In the spring of 1970, artist Ralph Steadman came to the United States in search of work and found more than he bargained for when he met Hunter S. Thompson at the Kentucky Derby. Their spirited collaboration resulted in the now-legendary Gonzo Journalism, which would document the civil rights movement, the Nixon years & Watergate debacle, and the many bizarre & great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Not only did Steadman survive humiliation, gunplay, & hallucinatory despair through these affiliatory decades, he decided to include as his memoir's epigraph a remark of Thompson's: 'Don't write, Ralph. You'll bring shame on your family.' Illus. 396p.
