God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian

by Kurt Vonnegut

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/08/2011

  $22.99
In 1998, Kurt Vonnegut was sent to the afterlife by National Public Radio to conduct a series of (fictionalised) interviews. This adventure takes the form of a series of transcripts from these encounters - brief pieces which were originally read on WNYC, Manhattan's public radio station, but have now been revised and rewritten. What begins as a series of 90-second radio interviews evolves into a provocative collection of musings about who and what people live for, featuring a fantastical cast of characters including Shakespeare, Mary Shelley and Isaac Newton.

Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis in 1922 and studied biochemistry at Cornell University. An army intelligence scout during the Second World War, he was captured by the Germans and witnessed the destruction of Dresden by Allied bombers, an experience which inspired his classic novel Slaughterhouse-Five.

After the war he worked as a police reporter, an advertising copywriter and a public relations man for General Electric. His first novel Player Piano (1952) achieved underground success. Cat's Cradle (1963) was hailed by Graham Greene as 'one of the best novels of the year by one of the ablest living authors'.

His eighth book, Slaughterhouse-Five was published in 1969 and was a literary and commercial success, and was made into a film in 1972. Vonnegut is the author of thirteen other novels, three collections of stories and five non-fiction books. Kurt Vonnegut died in 2007.
