Résumé

From the acclaimed author of " Slaughterhouse-Five ", " Cat's Cradle ", " Breakfast of Champions ", and " Timequake " comes this new compilation of short fiction, twenty-three previously uncollected stories. These vignettes of American life draw on Kurt Vonnegut's World War Two experiences and the resolute optimism of the country after the war. Together, they present a poignant and humorous portrayal of an America peopled with overzealous high school band directors and their students ("Ambitious Sophomore"), rebellious housewives ("Custom-Made Bride") and boasting salesmen ("Bagombo Snuff Box"), soldiers misplaced during the war " Der Arme Dolmetscher " and people lost in their own gadget-filled homes ("The Package").

À propos de l'auteur

Biographie de Kurt Vonnegut

In an era before television, Kurt Vonnegut found a ready and willing audience in the readers of such magazines as " Collier's ", " The Saturday Evening Post Cosmopolitan ", " Argosy ", and " Redbook ". These rare, rediscovered tales give us a glimpse into a more innocent America-and into the developing genius of one of the greatest writers of our time.
