NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER For all those who have lived with Vonnegut in their imaginations . . . this is what he is like in person.USA Today

In a volume that is penetrating, introspective, incisive, and laugh-out-loud funny, one of the great men of letters of this ageor any ageholds forth on life, art, sex, politics, and the state of Americas soul. From his coming of age in America, to his formative war experiences, to his life as an artist, this is Vonnegut doing what he does best: Being himself. Whimsically illustrated by the author, A Man Without a Country is intimate, tender, and brimming with the scope of Kurt Vonneguts passions.

Praise for A Man Without a Country

[This] may be as close as Vonnegut ever comes to a memoir.Los Angeles Times

Like [that of] his literary ancestor Mark Twain, [Kurt Vonneguts] crankiness is good-humored and sharp-witted. . . . [Reading A Man Without a Country is] like sitting down on the couch for a long chat with an old friend.The New York Times Book Review

Filled with [Vonneguts] usual contradictory mix of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, humor and gravity.Chicago Tribune

Fans will linger on every word . . . as once again [Vonnegut] captures the complexity of the human condition with stunning calligraphic simplicity.The Australian

Thank God, Kurt Vonnegut has broken his promise that he will never write another book. In this wondrous assemblage of mini-memoirs, we discover his familys legacy and his obstinate, unfashionable humanism.Studs Terkel
