Описание: Best known as one of America's most astonishing and enduring contemporary novelists, Kurt Vonnegut was also a celebrated commencement address giver. Vonnegut never graduated from college, so his words to any class of graduating seniors always carried the delight, and gentle irony, of someone savoring an achievement he himself had not had occasion to savor on his own behalf.
-But about my Uncle Alex, who is up in Heaven now, - Vonnegut, an avowed Humanist, would say sometimes in a graduation speech, -one of the things he found objectionable about human beings was that they so rarely noticed it when they were happy. . . . We could be drinking lemonade in the summertime, and Uncle Alex would interrupt the conversation to say, 'If this isn't nice, what is?'-
If This Isn't Nice, What Is? includes eleven speeches and four pieces of journalism on related themes. Six of the fifteen are new to the second edition--on topics as wide-ranging as why it is that Kurt Vonnegut's dog loves people more than Kurt Vonnegut does, and what it feels like to be the most censored writer in America--and much, much more.
In each of these talks and short essays, Vonnegut takes pains to find the few things worth saying and a conversational voice to say them in that's funny and serious and joyful even if sometimes without seeming so.

Описание: First published on the anniversary of Kurt Vonnegut's death, "Armageddon in Retrospect" is a collection of twelve new and unpublished writings on war and peace. Imbued with Vonnegut's trademark rueful humour, the pieces range from a visceral nonfiction recollection of the destruction of Dresden during World War II - a piece that is as timely today as it was then - to a painfully funny short story about three privates and their fantasies of the perfect first meal upon returning home from war, to a darker, more poignant story about the impossibility of shielding our children from the temptations of violence. Also included in this title are Vonnegut's last speech as well as an assortment of his artwork, with an introduction by the author's son, Mark Vonnegut.

"Armageddon in Retrospect" says as much about the times in which we live as it does about the genius of the writer.

Описание:

Slapstick presents an apocalyptic vision as seen through the eyes of the current King of Manhattan (and last President of the United States), a wickedly irreverent look at the all-too-possible results of today's follies. But even the end of life-as-we-know-it is transformed by Kurt Vonnegut's pen into hilarious farce--a final slapstick that may be the Almighty's joke on us all.

Описание: Manhattan has become the Island of Death. The former President of the United States stands barefoot in a purple toga around a cooking fire in the lobby of the Empire State Building. He is Dr Wilbur Daffodil-II Swain and Slapstick or Lonesome No More! is his story - one of monstrous twins, orgies, revenge, golf, utopian schemes, and very little tooth brushing. In this post-apocalyptic black comedy - dedicated to Laurel and Hardy - Vonnegut is at his most hilarious, grotesque, and personal.

Описание: The definitive edition of Kurt Vonnegut s fiction concludes with three brilliantly satirical novels of the 1980s and 90s collected in one volume for the first time.Here are the final three novels of thevisionary master who defined a generation. "Bluebeard" (1987) isthe colorful history of a phenomenally gifted realist painterwho, in the 1950s, betrayed his artistic vision for commercialsuccess. now, at seventy-one, he writes his memoirs and plotshis revenge on the worldly forces that conspired to corrupt histalent. In "Hocus Pocus" (1990), a freewheeling prison memoirby a Vietnam vet and disgraced academic, Vonnegut brings hisindelible voice to a range of still-burning issues free speech, racism, environmental calamity, deindustrialization, and globalization. "Timequake" (1997), the author s last completed novel, is part science fiction yarn (starring perennial protagonistKilgore trout), part diary of the mid-1990s (starring theauthor himself). the result is a perfect fusion of Vonnegut s twosignature genres, the satirical fantasy and the personal essay, anda literary magician s fond farewell to his readers and his craft. Rounded out with a selection of short nonfictionpieces intimately related to these three works, thisvolume presents the final word from the artist who the"San Francisco Chronicle," reviewing "Timequake," called an old warrior who will not accept the dehumanizing ofpolitics, the blunting of conscience, and the glibness ofthe late-twentieth-century Western world.

Описание: Dr Felix Hoenikker, one of the founding `fathers` of the atomic bomb, has left a deadly legacy to humanity. For he is the inventor of ice-nine, a lethal chemical capable of freezing the entire planet. Writer Jonah`s search for his whereabouts leads him to Hoenikker`s three eccentric children, to an island republic in the Caribbean where the absurd religion of Bokononism is practised, to love and to insanity. Told with deadpan humour and bitter irony, Kurt Vonnegut`s cult tale of global destruction is a frightening and funny satire on the end of the world and the madness of mankind.
