NATIONAL BESTSELLER - Foreword by Dave Eggers

These previously unpublished, beautifully rendered works of fiction are a testament to Kurt Vonneguts unique blend of observation and imagination. Here are stories of men and machines, art and artifice, and how ideals of fortune, fame, and love take curious twists in ordinary lives.

An ambitious builder of roads fritters away his free time with miniature trains--until the women in his life crash his fantasy land. Trapped in a stenography pool, a young dreamer receives a call from a robber on the run, who presents her with a strange proposition. A crusty newspaperman is forced onto a committee to judge Christmas displays--a job that leads him to a suspiciously ostentatious ex-con and then a miracle. Featuring a Foreword by Dave Eggers, While Mortals Sleep is a poignant reflection of our world as it is and as it could be.

Includes the following stories:

Jenny
The Epizootic
Hundred-Dollar Kisses
Guardian of the Person
With His Hand on the Throttle
Girl Pool
Ruth
While Mortals Sleep
Out, Brief Candle
Tango
Bomar
The Man Without No Kiddleys
Mr. Z
$10,000 a Year, Easy

The Humbugs

Praise for While Mortals Sleep

Immensely readable and thoroughly entertaining.--The Washington Post

Taut, concise . . . The stories set themselves up with neat swiftness, proceed at a clip, and shut down with equal speed, showing Vonnegut] honing his skills in structure and satire.--Los Angeles Times

A lovely reminder of the mischievous moral voice we lost when we lost Kurt Vonnegut.--San Francisco Chronicle

These stories were all good when they were written decades ago, but many strike me as great now. Never has the voice of Kurt Vonnegut, humanist and humorist, been more relevant.--The Seattle Times

Theres something distinctly timeless about Vonneguts vision.--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

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published on the anniversary of Kurt Vonnegut's death, "Armageddon in Retrospect" is a collection of twelve new and unpublished writings on war and peace.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:

"A funny, savage appraisal of a totally automated American society of the future."--San Francisco Chronicle

Kurt Vonnegut's first novel spins the chilling tale of engineer Paul Proteus, who must find a way to live in a world dominated by a supercomputer and run completely by machines. Paul's rebellion is vintage Vonnegut--wildly funny, deadly serious, and terrifyingly close to reality.

Praise for Player Piano

"An exuberant, crackling style . . . Vonnegut is a black humorist, fantasist and satirist, a man disposed to deep and comic reflection on the human dilemma."--Life

"His black logic . . . gives us something to laugh about and much to fear."--The New York Times Book Review
