While Mortals Sleep Zusammenfassung

While Mortals Sleep Kurt Vonnegut

While Mortals Sleep is a smart, clear-eyed collection of stories from one of the most original writers in American fiction. Set in trailers, bars and factories, Vonnegut conjures up a world where men and machines, art and artifice, fame and fortune become curiously twisted and characters pit their dreams and fears against a cruel and comically indifferent world.

Written early in his career, and never published before, these tightly plotted stories are infused with Vonnegut's distinctive blend of observation, imagination and scabrous humour.

This collection features an introduction by Dave Eggers.

While Mortals Sleep Bewertungen

Vonnegut is masterful at quickly sketching a character who you instantly recognise and immeadiately are willing to follow... no matter the plot, you as the reader know that by the end of the story, you will get somewhere. That Vonnegut will tell you something with candour and clarity -- Dave Eggers
A cool writer, at once throwaway and passionate and very funny * Financial Times *
A satirist with a heart, a moralist with a whoopee cushion, a cynic who wants to believe -- Jay McInerney
Unimitative and inimitable social satirist * Harper's *
A laughing prophet of doom * New York Times *
