Pay attention please to the life of Walter F. Starbuck. Nineteen-hundred and Thirteen gave him the gift of life. Nineteenth-hundred and Thirty-one sent him to Harvard. Nineteen-hundred and Thirty-eight got him a job in the federal government. Nineteen-hundred and Seventy gave him a job in the Nixon White House. Nineteen-hundred and Seventy-five sent him to prison for his part in the American political scandals known collectively as 'Watergate'. Now Walter F. Starbuck is coming out of jail, into the brave new world of 1980s Manhattan, and this is the story of his first twenty-four hours of freedom.

From the Inside Flap:

Jailbird takes us into a fractured  and comic, pure Vonnegut world of high crimes and  misdemeanors in government. . .and in the heart.  This wry tale follows bumbling bureaucrat Walter F.  Starbuck from Harvard to the Nixon White House to  the penitentiary as Watergate's least known  co-conspirator. But the humor turns dark when Vonnegut  shines his spotlight on the cold hearts and  calculated greed of the mighty, giving a razor-sharp  edge to an unforgettable portait of power and  politics in our times.

From the Back Cover:

"He is our strongest writer . . . the most stubbornly imaginative." -- John Irving, author of The Cider House Rules.

"A gem. . . a mature, imaginative novel-possibly the best he has written. . . Jailbird is a guided tour de force of America. Take it!" -- Playboy
