"Novelist Kurt Vonnegut survived the bombing of Dresden in World War II while a POW and returned to the U.S. to launch a stellar literary career that lasted until his death in 2007. This collection of his letters, compiled by fellow novelist Dan Wakefield, provides a comprehensive and intimate account of Vonnegut's life. Wakefield includes a general introduction to the book and brief introductions to chronological groups of letters, adding contextual annotations where needed, in this "moving and revelatory portrait" (Publishers Weekly) of Vonnegut's personal and professional life."
