Look at the Birdie: Unpublished Short Fiction by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Look at the Birdie: Unpublished Short Fiction Look at the Birdie b is a collection of fourteen previously unpublished short stories from one of the most original writers in all of American fiction In this series of perfectly rendered vignettes written just as he was starting to find his comic voice Kurt Vonnegut paints a warm wise and funny portrait of life in post World War II America a world where squabbling couples high school geniuses misfit office workers and small town lotharios struggle to adapt to changing technology moral ambiguity and unprecedented affluence .

Here are tales both cautionary and hopeful each brimming with Vonnegut s trademark humor and profound humanism A family learns the downside of confiding their deepest secrets into a magical invention A man finds himself in a Kafkaesque world of trouble after he runs afoul of the shady underworld boss who calls the shots in an upstate New York town A quack psychiatrist turned murder counselor concocts a novel new outlet for his paranoid patients While these stories reflect the anxieties of the postwar era that Vonnegut was so adept at capturing and provide insight into the development of his early style collectively they have a timeless quality that makes them just as relevant today as when they were written It s impossible to imagine any of these pieces flowing from the pen of another writer each in its own way is unmistakably quintessentially Vonnegut .

Featuring a Foreword by author and longtime Vonnegut confidant Sidney Offit and illustrated with Vonnegut s characteristically insouciant line drawings b Look at the Birdie b is an unexpected gift for readers who thought his unique voice had been stilled forever and serves as a terrific introduction to his short fiction for anyone who has yet to experience his genius .
