More Information

Born in 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana, Kurt Vonnegut was one of the few grandmasters of modern American letters. Called by the New York Times «the counterculture’s novelist,» his works guided a generation through the miasma of war and greed that was life in the U.S. in second half of the 20th century. After stints as a soldier, anthropology PhD candidate, technical writer for General Electric, and salesman at a Saab dealership, Vonnegut rose to prominence with the publication of «Cat’s Cradle» in 1963. Several modern classics, including «Slaughterhouse-Five», soon followed. Never quite embraced by the stodgier arbiters of literary taste, Vonnegut was nonetheless beloved by millions of readers throughout the world. «Given who and what I am,» he once said, «it has been presumptuous of me to write so well.» Kurt Vonnegut died in New York in 2007.
