The definitive edition of Kurt Vonnegut s fiction concludes with three brilliantly satirical novels of the 1980s and 90s collected in one volume for the first time.Here are the final three novels of thevisionary master who defined a generation. "Bluebeard" (1987) isthe colorful history of a phenomenally gifted realist painterwho, in the 1950s, betrayed his artistic vision for commercialsuccess. now, at seventy-one, he writes his memoirs and plotshis revenge on the worldly forces that conspired to corrupt histalent. In "Hocus Pocus" (1990), a freewheeling prison memoirby a Vietnam vet and disgraced academic, Vonnegut brings hisindelible voice to a range of still-burning issues free speech, racism, environmental calamity, deindustrialization, and globalization. "Timequake" (1997), the author s last completed novel, is part science fiction yarn (starring perennial protagonistKilgore trout), part diary of the mid-1990s (starring theauthor himself). the result is a perfect fusion of Vonnegut s twosignature genres, the satirical fantasy and the personal essay, anda literary magician s fond farewell to his readers and his craft. Rounded out with a selection of short nonfictionpieces intimately related to these three works, thisvolume presents the final word from the artist who the"San Francisco Chronicle," reviewing "Timequake," called an old warrior who will not accept the dehumanizing ofpolitics, the blunting of conscience, and the glibness ofthe late-twentieth-century Western world.
