About Kurt Vonnegut

Born in 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana, KURT VONNEGUT was one of the few grandmasters of modern American letters. Called by the "New York Times" "the counterculture's novelist," his works guided a generation through the miasma of war and greed that was life in the U.S. in second half of the 20th century. After a stints as a soldier, anthropology PhD candidate, technical writer for General Electric, and salesman at a Saab dealership, Vonnegut rose to prominence with the publication of"Cat's Cradle "in 1963. Several modern classics, including "Slaughterhouse-Five," soon followed. Never quite embraced by the stodgier arbiters of literary taste, Vonnegut was nonetheless beloved by millions of readers throughout the world. "Given who and what I am," he once said, "it has been presumptuous of me to write so well." Kurt Vonnegut died in New York in 2007. A longtime friend of Kurt Vonnegut's, Dan Wakefield edited and introduced "Kurt Vonnegut: Letters." Wakefield is the author of the memoirs "New York in the Fifties" and "Returning: A Spiritual Journey." His novel, "Going All the Way" was made into a movie starring Ben Affleck. Wakefield also created the NBC prime time series, "James at Fifteen." He lives in Indianapolis, Indiana.""
