Vonnegut by the Dozen: Twelve Pieces by Kurt Vonnegut

Vonnegut strikes me as someone who might appeal to Ethan Sheldon and others who rarely read for pleasure.

Dear Terry,
eBook-Vonnegut cover
America owes Kurt Vonnegut a debt of gratitude for infusing its culture with his brilliant insight. Vonnegut by the Dozen: Twelve Pieces by Kurt Vonnegut is available in paperback and in digital format for tablets, smartphones and computers.

The author of Mother Night, Player Piano and Slaughterhouse Five used The Nation as one of the outlets for his political writing. The mordantly funny pieces assembled in this collection cover a twenty-year period from 1978 to 1998, when Vonnegut mused about Mark Twain, Eugene V. Debs, Weimar Germany, Jimmy Carter's cabinet, Edwin Meese, Michael Dukakis and more.

His politics were consistently to the left, and after fighting in World War II—which, for all its horrors, he considered a just war—he angrily condemned all of the United States' subsequent wars of choice. His best work, as you will see, deals with ultimate questions.

Best of all, by purchasing e-books through eBookNation, you'll help to sustain The Nation's journalism while supporting our writers and progressive ideals.
