Summary
"A Man without a Country is Kurt Vonnegut's funny and razor-sharp look at life, art, politics, himself, and the condition of the soul of America today." "Written over the last five years with the examples of Mark Twain, Jesus Christ, Abraham Lincoln, and a saintly doctor named Ignaz Semmelweis powerfully in mind, illustrated with artwork by the author, A Man without a Country is an intimate and tender communication from one individual to his fellow Americans, sometimes joking, at other times despairing, always searching."--BOOK JACKET
