NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER<br><br>&#8220; This] may be as close as Vonnegut ever comes to a memoir.&#8221; <br>&#8211;<i>Los Angeles Times<br></i><br>&#8220;Like that of] his literary ancestor Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut&#8217;s] crankiness is good-humored and sharp-witted. . . . Reading <i>A Man Without a Country</i> is] like sitting down on the couch for a long chat with an old friend.&#8221; <br><i>&#8211;The New York Times Book Review</i><br><br>In a volume that is penetrating, introspective, incisive, and laugh-out-loud funny, one of the great men of letters of this age&#8211;or any age&#8211;holds forth on life, art, sex, politics, and the state of America&#8217;s soul. From his coming of age in America, to his formative war experiences, to his life as an artist, this is Vonnegut doing what he does best: Being himself. Whimsically illustrated by the author, <i>A Man Without a Country</i> is intimate, tender, and brimming with the scope of Kurt Vonnegut&#8217;s passions.<br><br>&#8220;For all those who have lived with Vonnegut in their imaginations . . . this is what he is like in person.&#8221; <br>&#8211;<i>USA Today</i><br><br>&#8220;Filled with Vonnegut&#8217;s] usual contradictory mix of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, humor and gravity.&#8221; <br>&#8211;<i>Chicago Tribune</i><br><br>&#8220;Fans will linger on every word . . . as once again Vonnegut] captures the complexity of the human condition with stunning calligraphicsimplicity.&#8221; <br>&#8211;<i>The Australian</i><br><br>&#8220;Thank God, Kurt Vonnegut has broken his promise that he will never write another book. In this wondrous assemblage of mini-memoirs, we discover his family&#8217;s legacy and his obstinate, unfashionable humanism.&#8221; <br>&#8211;Studs Terkel
