For many years, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. has been a hero of underground literature in America. Only recently, however, has the general public become aware of his unique genius. His is a far-out imagination which always winds up right on target, an irresistible humor with a superb cutting edge, a storytelling talent that makes reading a pleasure as well as a mind-jolting experience. He is, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers."« less
