St. Louis Post-Dispatch Vonnegut is George Orwell, Dr. Caligari and Flash Gordon compounded into one writer. Time "show more

About Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut's black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" (The New York Times) with Cat's Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, "one of the best living American writers." Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.show more
