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!
"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.
