Über den Autor

The appeal of Kurt Vonnegut, especially to bright younger readers of the past few decades, may be attributed partly to the fact that he is one of the few writers who have successfully straddled the imaginary line between science-fiction/fantasy and "real literature." He was born in Indianapolis and mehr anzeigen attended Cornell University, but his college education was interrupted by World War II. Captured during the Battle of the Bulge and imprisoned in Dresden, he received a Purple Heart for what he calls a "ludicrously negligible wound." After the war he returned to Cornell and then earned his M.A. at the University of Chicago.He worked as a police reporter and in public relations before placing several short stories in the popular magazines and beginning his career as a novelist. His first novel, Player Piano (1952), is a highly credible account of a future mechanistic society in which people count for little and machines for much. The Sirens of Titan (1959), is the story of a playboy whisked off to Mars and outer space in order to learn some humbling lessons about Earth's modest function in the total scheme of things. Mother Night (1962) satirizes the Nazi mentality in its narrative about an American writer who broadcasts propaganda in Germany during the war as an Allied agent. Cat's Cradle (1963) makes use of some of Vonnegut's experiences in General Electric laboratories in its story about the discovery of a special kind of ice that destroys the world. God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater (1965) satirizes a benevolent foundation set up to foster the salvation of the world through love, an endeavor with, of course, disastrous results. Slaughterhouse-Five; or The Children's Crusade (1969) is the book that marked a turning point in Vonnegut's career. Based on his experiences in Dresden, it is the story of another Vonnegut surrogate named Billy Pilgrim who travels back and forth in time and becomes a kind of modern-day Everyman. The novel was something of a cult book during the Vietnam era for its antiwar sentiments. Breakfast of Champions (1973), the story of a Pontiac dealer who goes crazy after reading a science fiction novel by "Kilgore Trout," received generally unfavorable reviews but was a commercial success. Slapstick (1976), dedicated to the memory of Laurel and Hardy, is the somewhat wacky memoir of a 100-year-old ex-president who thinks he can solve society's problems by giving everyone a new middle name. In addition to his fiction, Vonnegut has published nonfiction on social problems and other topics, some of which is collected in Wampeters, Foma and Granfalloons (1974). He died from head injuries sustained in a fall on April 11, 2007. (Bowker Author Biography) weniger anzeigen

Rezensionen

As good as every other Vonnegut book I read. Always good to think with the mind of somebody else as Vonnegut always makes me.

I admire his writing skills and his ability of weaving his stories into actual history - showing what a reader might consider as relevant but hasn't discovered yet.

Billy Pilgrime wurde von Außerirdischen entführt und auf deren Planeten in einem Zoo ausgestellt. Dabei hat er sich die fatalistische Denkweise der Außerirdischen und deren Fähigkeit, in vier Diemensionen zu sehen, angeeignet. Wieder zurück auf der Erde springt er planlos von einem Punkt seines Lebens zum anderen. Vonnegut schildert im vorliegenden Buch zusammenhanglos und ohne Chronologie verschiedene durch derartige Zeitsprünge erreichte Episoden von Pilgrimes Leben, darunter auch jene, in der er als geistesschwacher Soldat in Kriegsgefangenschaft die verheerenden Luftangriffe auf Dresden er- und überlebt.

Diese kurze Inhaltsangabe zeigt bereits, dass man es bei Vonneguts eher auf ein metafiktionales Experiment mit literarischen Kunstgriffen zu tun hat, als mit einem klassischem (Anti)kriegsroman garniert mit autobiographischen Schilderungen der Bombardierung Dresdens. Entgegen der internationalen Kritik finde ich, dass Vonneguts Experiment fehlgeschlagen ist. Er liefert eine wirre, skurrile und teilweise fragmentarisch gebliebene Erzählung, die dem Leser viel Geduld abverlangt. Negativ hinzu kommt die grottenschlechte Übersetzung der vorliegenden Ausgabe.

Ich muss gestehen, dass mir wirklich die Worte fehlen um dieses Buch zu beschreiben oder zu rezensieren. Es ist ein absurdes Buch über den Krieg, gegen den Krieg, mit wuchtigen Szenen und Sequenzen und ungewöhnlichen Allegorien. Ich glaube, dass ich es irgendwie intuitiv verstehe , aber ich kann darüber nichts vernünftiges formulieren.

Ziemlich abstruse, auf den Punkt gebrachte Kurzgeschichten, teils leicht verstörend, aber immer unterhaltsam und mindestens zum Schmunzeln anregend.
