Product Description

Sixteen long-buried, brilliant short stories dating from early in Kurt Vonnegut's career. Here are stories of men and machines, art and artifice, and how ideals of fortune, fame, and love take curious twists in ordinary lives. For example: a hog farmer's widow receives cryptic, unsolicited letters from a man in Schenectady about 'the indefinable sweet aches of the spirit. But what will she find when she goes to meet him in the flesh?; an ambitious builder of rads, commanding an army of bulldozers, graders, and asphalt spreader, fritters away his free time with miniature trains - until the women in his life crash his fantasy land. These stories are like a present left behind, a poignant reflection of our world as it is and as it could be.... through Kurt Vonnegut's vision. List of Illustrations. Includes original illustrations by the author. Illustrated. 257p.
