We are having a "Where's Waldo in Irvington?" Scavenger Hunt this month. Pick up a scavenger hunt form during store hours in July and search for the "Waldo" statuettes at the designated Irvington locations. After completing the form, return it to Bookmamas and receive a token prize. Then you are eligible to place your entry in the larger prize drawing which will be held in August.
A Man Without a Country (Paperback)
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER " This] may be as close as Vonnegut ever comes to a memoir."
-Los Angeles Times
"Like that of] his literary ancestor Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut's] crankiness is good-humored and sharp-witted. . . . Reading A Man Without a Country is] like sitting down on the couch for a long chat with an old friend."
-The New York Times Book Review In a volume that is penetrating, introspective, incisive, and laugh-out-loud funny, one of the great men of letters of this age-or any age-holds forth on life, art, sex, politics, and the state of America's soul. From his coming of age in America, to his formative war experiences, to his life as an artist, this is Vonnegut doing what he does best: Being himself. Whimsically illustrated by the author, A Man Without a Country is intimate, tender, and brimming with the scope of Kurt Vonnegut's passions. "For all those who have lived with Vonnegut in their imaginations . . . this is what he is like in person."
-USA Today "Filled with Vonnegut's] usual contradictory mix of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, humor and gravity."
-Chicago Tribune "Fans will linger on every word . . . as once again Vonnegut] captures the complexity of the human condition with stunning calligraphic simplicity."
-The Australian "Thank God, Kurt Vonnegut has broken his promise that he will never write another book. In this wondrous assemblage of mini-memoirs, we discover his family's legacy and his obstinate, unfashionable humanism."
About the Author
Kurt Vonnegut's black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" (The New York Times) with Cat's Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, "one of the best living American writers." Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.
