I haven't read the book yet. But I am soooooo looking forward to it! I have read every book this man has published, and I hope he will keep writing until his very last day. I can only say, if you do not enjoy Kurt Vonnegut, then you can just (as he would say...) "TAKE A FLYING F**k AT THE MOON!" HI-HO !

Well, I would say that Vonnegut is such an outstanding author that anyone who doesn't enjoy him probably simply hasn't read him yet. You don't have to be a liberal to recognize literary genius. Yes, by all means read "A Man Without a Country," which could well be a collection of trial acceptance speeches for the Nobel Prize, and then jump on the bandwagon: the Nobel for Vonnegut in 2006!

Alternately, someone who doesn't enjoy Vonnegut might have read "Jailbird". That could be enough to push someone away.

I'm glad that when my work doesn't gel together nicely, it's not then put on public display...

"A Man Without a Country," (Seven Stories Press, 2005), is a slender book of Vonnegut's musings, opinions and insights about the state of humanity, and specifically American humanity. It starts out grumpy - bringing to mind my mother, only eighty to Vonnegut's eighty-three and Carter's eighty-two - and focuses on all the bad news in the world: greed, religion, politics, and the curious admixture of religion with politics.

But aren't there plenty of reviews on Amazon's site? Why would anyone want to go to your little site to get reviews?

Of course you are right. If you just read a single work of any author, there is a chance you won't like it and assume you wouldn't like any of his other work.

I'm curious to know what work of yours has gelled together nicely and is on public display.

Hey, Gus the Goldfish! Where are you? Is this another hit and run?
