Synopsis

Critical Companion to Kurt Vonnegut by Susan Farrell

Kurt Vonnegut is one of the most popular and admired authors of post-war American literature - famous both for his playful and deceptively simple style as well as for his scathing critiques of social injustice and war. Critical Companion to Kurt Vonnegut provides a reliable, up-to-date, and encyclopedic source of information on Vonnegut's life and work for high school and college-level students, teachers, libraries, and the general public. This new book covers all his works, including his novels, such as the unforgettable Slaughterhouse-Five ; his short stories, such as Harrison Bergeron ; and his lectures and essays.
