Jailbird

A Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Jailbird takes us into a fractured and comic, pure Vonnegut world of high crimes and misdemeanors in government—and in the heart. This wry tale follows bumbling bureaucrat Walter F. Starbuck from Harvard to the Nixon White House to the penitentiary as Watergate’s least known co-conspirator. But the humor turns dark when Vonnegut shines his spotlight on the cold hearts and calculated greed of the mighty, giving a razor-sharp edge to an unforgettable portrait of power and politics in our times.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Customer Reviews

One of his best

I've read most of Kurt Vonnegut's books, but this one I read again every few years. It's funny and dark. Very Vonnegut.

100 Words or Less

This back shelf novel has some good Vonnegut moments, but overall it falls a bit flat. That’s the problem with great writers … it’s near impossible to excel with every project.
