    DescriptionNEW 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. . . . [Reading "A Man Without a Country" is] 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 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. "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
