Om forfatteren

Kurt Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis in 1922 and studied biochemistry at Cornell University. An army intelligence scout during the Second World War, he was captured by the Germans and witnessed the destruction of Dresden by Allied bombers, an experience which inspired his classic novel Slaughterhouse-Five. After the war he worked as a police reporter, an advertising copywriter and a public relations man for General Electric. His first novel Player Piano (1952) achieved underground success. Cat's Cradle (1963) was hailed by Graham Greene as 'one of the best novels of the year by one of the ablest living authors'. His eighth book, Slaughterhouse-Five was published in 1969 and was a literary and commercial success, and was made into a film in 1972. Vonnegut is the author of thirteen other novels, three collections of stories and five non-fiction books. Kurt Vonnegut died in 2007.

Anmeldelser

«Marvellous...the writing is pungent, the antics uproarious, the humour suitably black, the wit sharp as a hypodermic»

Daily Telegraph

«Mr Vonnegut knows a great deal about what is probably the largest massacre in modern history - the fire-bombing of Dresden in 1945. Slaughterhouse Five is a reaction to the event by one of our most gifted and incisive novelists. A work of keen literary artistry»

Joseph Heller, author of 'Catch-22'

«The individuality of Vonnegut's style is a curious yet perfect match for the pain of the emotional content. A humane, human book that always remains a work of art rather than biography, no matter how apparent the author's presence»

Kate Atkinson

«Unique...one of the writers who map our landscapes for us, who give names to the places we know best»

Doris Lessing

«Funny, satirical, compelling, outrageous, fanciful, mordant, fecund and at the bottom-line, simply stoned-out-of-its-mind»

Los Angeles Times

Medlemmers vurdering

E
Euphoria – 16.02.2006

– Slaughterhouse 5 var mitt første møte med Vonnegut, men det blir garantert ikke det siste. Dette er en fantasifull og spennende liten roman som handler om Billy Pilgrims opplevelser under den andre verdenskrig. Boken hopper friskt mellom nåtid, fortid og fremtid med tiden i seg selv som tablå. Med en sterk overbevisning om at han ble bortført av romvesener, hallusinerer Pilgrim seg gjennom krigen.. eller kanskje han har rett i at all tid eksisterer samtidig? Satiren er skarp, humoren underfundig og språket svært fengslende. Bifigurene (som f.eks sci-fi forfatteren Trout) er minst like fascinerende som fortellergrepet og selve historien.
La deg ikke skremme av meta-grepene som presenteres i første kapittel. Dette er en historie fortalt helt utenom det vanlige.
