Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) was one of the best loved American authors of his generation, even having an asteroid named after him. The author′s most celebrated novels are Slaughterhouse-Five, Cat′s Cradle, and Breakfast of Champions. His work stretched across black comedy, science fiction and satire.

Prior to his writing career, Vonnegut fought in World War II. Captured by the Germans, he was a prisoner of war and held in an underground meat locker being used as a makeshift prison. The Germans called the building Schlachthof Fünf (Slaughterhouse Five) and Vonnegut′s experiences, including seeing the devastating bombing of Dresden, became the basis for several books.
