9780099524083: Armageddon in Retrospect (Vintage Classics)

First published on the anniversary of Kurt Vonnegut's death, Armageddon in Retrospect is a collection of twelve new writings - a fitting tribute to the author, and an essential contribution to the discussion of war, peace and humanity's tendency towards violence. Imbued with Vonnegut's trademark rueful humour, the pieces range from a visceral non-fiction recollection of the destruction of Dresden - to a painfully funny short story about three soldiers and their fantasies of the perfect meal.

Review:

"Reads like a madcap Montaigne on acid" ( Metro)

"The most entertaining of American writers, almost a new Mark Twain...his words can travel on through time" ( Daily Mail)

"The wittiest man since Groucho Marx and the wisest since Karl Marx" ( The Times)

"Imbued with the innocence, empathy, and kindness that always seemed central to Vonnegut's sensibility" (Lionel Shriver Financial Times)

"(Vonnegut) was a splendid preacher of American populism at its most radical...always funny and sometimes refreshingly vulgar" ( Independent)

Book Description:

The first and only collection of unpublished works by Kurt Vonnegut since his death-a fitting tribute to the author, and an essential contribution to the discussion of war, peace and humanity's tendency toward violence.
