Slaughterhouse-Five Or The Children's Crusade

A Duty-Dance with Death

‘The great, urgent, passionate American writer of our century, who offers us a model of the kind of compassionate thinking that might yet save us from ourselves.’ George Saunders

Prisoner of war, optometrist, time-traveller – these are the life roles of Billy Pilgrim, hero of this miraculously moving, bitter and funny story of innocence faced with apocalypse.
Slaughterhouse Five is one of the world’s great anti-war books. Centring on the infamous fire-bombing of Dresden in the Second World War, Billy Pilgrim’s odyssey through time reflects the journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we are afraid to know.

‘An extraordinary success. A book to read and reread. He is a true artist’
New York Times Book Review
Rezension
"Marvellous...the writing is pungent, the antics uproarious, the humour suitably black, the wit sharp as a hypodermic" Daily Telegraph
Portrait
Kurt Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis in 1922 and studied biochemistry at Cornell University. An army intelligence scout during the Second World War, he was captured by the Germans and witnessed the destruction of Dresden by Allied bombers, an experience which inspired his classic novel
Slaughterhouse-Five. After the war he worked as a police reporter, an advertising copywriter and a public relations man for General Electric. His first novel
Player Piano (1952) achieved underground success.
Cat's Cradle (1963) was hailed by Graham Greene as 'one of the best novels of the year by one of the ablest living authors'. His eighth book,
Slaughterhouse-Five was published in 1969 and was a literary and commercial success, and was made into a film in 1972. Vonnegut is the author of thirteen other novels, three collections of stories and five non-fiction books. Kurt Vonnegut died in 2007.

Krasses Buch!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Ascona am 02.03.2013

Ein unglaublich gutes Buch. Englische Literatur...Die Geschichte von Billy Pilgrim ist einfach abgedreht und krass. Sie fängt normal an und verwandelt sich dann in eine Science-Fiction-Fantasy-Thriller Story. Absolut empfehlenswert!
