Synopsis
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "[This] may be as close as Vonnegut ever comes to a memoir." Los Angeles Times "Like [that of] his literary ancestor Mark Twain, [Kurt Vonnegut's] crankiness is good-humored and sharp-witted. . . . [ReadingA Man Without a Countryis] like sitting down on the couch for a long chat with an old friend." The New York Times Book Review In a volume that is penetrating, introspective, incisive, and laugh-out-loud funny, one of the great men of letters of this ageor any ageholds forth on life, art, sex, politics, and the state of America's 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 Countryis intimate, tender, and brimming with the scope of Kurt Vonnegut's passions. "For all those who have lived with Vonnegut in their imaginations . . . this is what he is like in person." USA Today "Filled with [Vonnegut's] usual contradictory mix of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, humor and gravity." Chicago Tribune "Fans will linger on every word . . . as once again [Vonnegut] captures the complexity of the human condition with stunning calligraphic simplicity." The Australian "Thank God, Kurt Vonnegut has broken his promise that he will never write another book. In this wondrous assemblage of mini-memoirs, we discover his family's legacy and his obstinate, unfashionable humanism." Studs Terkel

A Man Without a Country


KURT VONNEGUT



In a volume that is penetrating, introspective, incisive, and laugh-out-loud funny,

one of the great men of letters of this age - or any age - holds forth on life, art, sex, politics, and the state of America's 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 Vonnegut's passions.

A collection of essays and, as it turned out, the author's swan song.

The six page Author's Note at the end of the book is almost entirely devoted to the relationship between Vonnegut and Petro, including the comment that "...it seems quite possible in retrospect that Joe Petro III saved my life."

Written over the (previous) five years, this book is an intimate and tender communication from one individual to his fellow Americans, sometimes joking, at other times despairing, always searching.

Vonnegut's emminently readable, engagingly humorous memoirs and observations quickly went into a number of print runs, with first printings being particularly elusive.

Random House trade paperback 2005, illustrated by the author 145 pages Good- appears to have been read in the bath. Water wowed.
