Kurt Vonnegut Quotes

Kurt Vonnegut (1922–2007), an American writer and humorist, gained renown for his satirical and darkly humorous novels during a career spanning over 50 years. Born in Indianapolis, he enlisted in the US Army during World War II and was captured during the Battle of the Bulge, surviving the Allied bombing of Dresden as a prisoner. Post-war, he married and adopted his sister’s children. Vonnegut attended the University of Chicago while working as a reporter. His first novel, “Player Piano” (1952), was followed by critically acclaimed works like “Slaughterhouse-Five” (1969), which became a commercial success amid the Vietnam War. Vonnegut’s later career featured autobiographical essays and collections, including “A Man Without a Country” (2005). After his death, he was celebrated as a significant contemporary writer and dark humor commentator on American society. His son published unpublished works in “Armageddon in Retrospect” (2008), and “Complete Stories” (2017) compiled Vonnegut’s short fiction, solidifying his legacy in literature.
