Letters

Vintage Classics

A collection of letters by one of the most original writers in American fiction. Spanning 60 years, from his letter home on release from a German POW camp, to doling out dubious advice to his children, his writing inspires thought, and induces outrage and laughter.

Portrait

Kurt Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis in 1922 and studied biochemistry at Cornell University. During the Second World War he served in Europe and, as a prisoner of was in Germany, witnessed the destruction of Dresden by Allied bombers, an experience which inspired his classic novel Slaughterhouse-Five. He is the author of thirteen other novels, three collections of stories and five non-fiction books. Kurt Vonnegut died in 2007. Dan Wakefield first befriended Kurt Vonnegut in 1963. Like Vonnegut, he was born and raised in Indianapolis. He is a novelist and screenwriter whose books include the bestselling Going All the Way and the memoir New York in the Fifties.

Zitat
"One closes this volume...full of gratitude for Dan Wakefield...the editor of this labour of love that gives us one more reason to love Kurt Vonnegut" -- John Sutherland The Times "This collection is perhaps the best insight into the everyday needles of a prolific author you could hope to read" -- Ed Caesar Sunday Times "Splendidly assembled and edited by Dan Wakefield ... [Vonnegut's] familiar, funny, cranky, acute voice ... is chronicling his life in real time." New York Times Book Review "Droll and self-deprecating letters offer intriguing insights into Vonnegut's life" Sunday Times "This miraculous volume of selected letters provides a moving and revelatory portrait of the famed author of Slaughterhouse-Five and Cat's Cradle... Fans will find the collection as spellbinding as Vonnegut's best novels, and casual readers will discover letters as splendid in their own way as those of Keats." Publisher's Weekly
