Pay attention please to the life of Walter F. Starbuck. Nineteen-hundred and Thirteen gave him the gift of life. Nineteenth-hundred and Thirty-one sent him to Harvard. Nineteen-hundred and Thirty-eight got him a job in the federal government. Nineteen-hundred and Seventy gave him a job in the Nixon White House. Nineteen-hundred and Seventy-five sent him to prison for his part in the American political scandals known collectively as 'Watergate'.

Now Walter F. Starbuck is coming out of jail, into the brave new world of 1980s Manhattan, and this is the story of his first twenty-four hours of freedom.

Review:

"As provoking, as amusing and as silver-tongued as anything Vonnegut has written" ( New Statesman)

" Jailbird has the crackle and snap of Vonnegut's early work - his best since Cat's Cradle. Using the laid-back, ironic voice that has become his stademark, Vonnegut combines fiction and fact to construct an ingenious, wry morality play" ( Newsweek)

"An overtly political novel attacking McCarthyism and Watergate" ( Daily Telegraph)

"After Vonnegut, everything else seems a bit tame" ( Spectator)

Book Description:

Jailbird is Vonnegut's riotous urban fairytale about the various fiascos of the Nixon years
