Starbuck is coming out of jail, into the brave new world of 1980s Manhattan, and this is the story of his first twenty-four hours of freedom.

Jailbird is the story of a hapless, but harmless career bureaucrat who seems destined to be continually punished for his sympathy for the working man. From the McCarthy Red Trials to Watergate, Walter F Starbuck consistently finds himself facing the wrong direction to the prevailing winds of capitalism.
Like the protagonist himself, Jailbird is a mild-mannered book simmering just under the surface with a scathing indictment of bureaucracy, ivy league education and multi-national corporations. Written in Vonnegut?s signature style, Jailbird is one of his best. A must have for any serious collection.
