Summary
"Vonnegut blended the bizarrely hypothetical with the gut-wrenchingly actual, infusing his biting wit with a bleak worldview partially created during his service in WWII and his time as a prisoner of war. Exploring each of Vonnegut's works, the author discusses the development of one of America's greatest authors"--Provided by publisher
