Professional reviews

"In three interviews with author Kurt Vonnegut--taped in 1971, 1983, and 2006--writer/interviewer Miller probes Vonnegut on the themes and theories behind some of his most popular works. Books discussed include THE SIRENS OF TITAN, SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE, BETWEEN TIME AND TIMBUKTU, PALM SUNDAY, and A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY. Miller, apparently a friend of the author and a devotee (at one point, he dubs Vonnegut "the white knight of postmodern literature"), piles on the ponderous lit-crit queries and generally overreaches in an effort toward profundity. Vonnegut happily sidesteps the academic blather and, deft and plainspoken as always, delivers his unique brand of humor-laced cynicism with freshness and charm. M.G.
