From the Publisher
Editors Note Kurt Vonnegut’s darkly comic work became a symbol for the counterculture of a generation. From his debut novel,  Player Piano (1951) through seminal 1960’s novels such as Cat’s Cradle (1963) and Slaughterhouse-Five (1969) up to the recent success of A Man Without A Country (2005), Vonnegut’s writing has remained commercially popular, offering a satirical yet optimistic outlook on modern life. Though many fellow writers admired Vonnegut—Gore Vidal famously suggesting that “Kurt was never dull” —the academic establishment has tended to retain a degree of scepticism concerning the validity of his work. This dynamic collection aims to re-evaluate Vonnegut’s position as an integral part of the American post-war cannon of literature.
