Kurt Vonnegut Book and Novel

Kurt Vonnegut - Author


Kurt Vonnegut was born in 1922 in Indianapolis. He studied biochemistry and anthropology at Cornell University, but his education was interrupted by the Second World War. He was a PoW in Dresden during the infamous firebombing of the city. Upon return to the US, he started writing, publishing his first SF story in 1950. Player Piano was his first SF novel, published in 1952. He gained popularity during the 1960s with novels such as God Bless You, Mr Rosewater (1965). After publishing his novel Hocus Pocus in 1990, he retired as a writer, declaring that he had nothing more to say – that is until 1997 when he wrote Timequake.
