KURT VONNEGUT HAS BEEN CALLED THE MARK TWAIN OF THE 20TH CENTURY. HIS INSIGHTS WERE FORGED IN DRESDEN DURING WWII. HE HWAS A P.O.W. BEING HELD IN AN UNDERGROUND SLAUGHTERHOUSE. IN DRESDEN HE SURVIVED THE FIRESTORM THAT DESTROYED THE CITY. THAT GAVE HIM A DIFFERENT OUTLOOK. HIS BOOKS ARE FUNNY AND ALL CARRY A MESSAGE. THIS IS ONE BOOK I WILL READ ONCE A YEAR TO KEEP MY COMPASS IN LINE.
This is prime Vonnegut. It will open your mind, heart and eyes to what is happening right now in our country. You can chose a side to be on, but, at least be open to this wonderful other way of looking!
