Read full description of the books:
Ja sam Amerikanac njemačkog porijekla, čistokrvan, iz onog vremena kad su se Amerikanci njemačkog porijekla ženili isključivo medu sohom. Kad sam upitao Angloamerikanku Jane Vlarie Cox da se uda za mene 1945., jedan od njenih ujaka pitao ju je: »Želiš li se stvarno miješati sa svim tim Nijemcima?«. Čak i danas postoji Marijanska brazda između nas i Angloamerikanaca,ali je sve manja i manja.
Ti ljudi bez grižnje savjesti, koji su govorili engleski na poslu, a njemački kod kuće, ne samo da su stvorili uspješne firme, uglavnom u Indianapolisu, Milwaukeeju, Chicagu i Cincinnatiju, nego i svoje vlastite banke, društvene klubove, koncertne dvorane, restorane, pansione i ljetne kolibe. To je sve učinilo da se Angloamerikanci pitaju, s dobrim razlogom moram priznati, "Dobro, pa čija je ovo zemlja, zapravo?".

Read information about the authorKurt Vonnegut, Junior was an American novelist, satirist, and most recently, graphic artist. He was recognized as New York State Author for 2001-2003.
He was born in Indianapolis, later the setting for many of his novels. He attended Cornell University from 1941 to 1943, where he wrote a column for the student newspaper, the Cornell Daily Sun. Vonnegut trained as a chemist and worked as a journalist before joining the U.S. Army and serving in World War II.
After the war, he attended University of Chicago as a graduate student in anthropology and also worked as a police reporter at the City News Bureau of Chicago. He left Chicago to work in Schenectady, New York in public relations for General Electric. He attributed his unadorned writing style to his reporting work.
His experiences as an advance scout in the Battle of the Bulge, and in particular his witnessing of the bombing of Dresden, Germany whilst a prisoner of war, would inform much of his work. This event would also form the core of his most famous work, Slaughterhouse-Five, the book which would make him a millionaire. This acerbic 200-page book is what most people mean when they describe a work as "Vonnegutian" in scope.
Vonnegut was a self-proclaimed humanist and socialist (influenced by the style of Indiana's own Eugene V. Debs) and a lifelong supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
The novelist is known for works blending satire, black comedy and science fiction, such as Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), Cat's Cradle (1963), and Breakfast of Champions (1973)
