Kurt Vonnegut (/m/049gc)

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. was an American writer and humorist. In a career spanning over 50 years, Vonnegut published fourteen novels, three short story collections, five plays, and five works of non-fiction. He is most famous for his darkly satirical, best-selling novel Slaughterhouse-Five. Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Vonnegut attended Cornell University, but dropped out in January 1943 and enlisted in the United States Army. He was deployed to Europe to fight in World War II, and survived the Allied bombing of Dresden by taking refuge in a meat locker. Afterwards, Vonnegut married Jane Marie Cox, with whom he had three children. He later adopted his sister's three children, after she died of cancer and her husband died in a train accident. Vonnegut published his first novel, Player Piano, in 1952. The novel was reviewed positively, but was not commercially successful. In the nearly twenty years that followed, Vonnegut published several novels that were only tepidly successful, such as Cat's Cradle and God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater. Vonnegut's magnum opus, however, was his immediately successful sixth novel, Slaughterhouse-Five.
