“Life Is No Way To Treat An Animal”

In Literature on October 8, 2008 at 11:50 am

A Man Without A Country is a smart and satisfying collection of short essays by the ever loved and revered Kurt Vonnegut.  Known for his works of satire and black comedy, Vonnegut never disappoints.  In this 2005 compilation, subjects vary from art to war and back to art again saying, “the arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable… it’s a way to make your soul grow… you’ll get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”  This creation was intended by Vonnegut to be his final work, and until after his death in April 2007, when a number of his unpublished works were assembled into Armageddon in Retrospect, it was. Kurt Vonnegut wished for the world that, “100 years from now people are still laughing.”  With your works, Mr. Vonnegut, they just might be.
