New Kurt Vonnegut

July 19, 2005 | 2 books mentioned

coverAfter Timequake, Kurt Vonnegut declared that his career as a novelist was over, but in recent years Seven Stories Press has collected the scattered writing he has done since his retirement into small books. A new, and perhaps more substantial, collection called A Man without a Country comes out in September. Seven Stories describes it thusly: “Based on short essays and speeches composed over the last five years and plentifully illustrated with artwork by the author throughout, A Man Without a Country gives us Vonnegut both speaking out with indignation and writing tenderly to his fellow Americans, sometimes joking, at other times hopeless, always searching.”

Update: Vonnegut talks about the new book on NPR.
Later: Vonnegut’s late in life success

created The Millions and is its publisher. He and his family live in New Jersey.
