Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Profile Picture

A distinctive and influential voice of 20th century American literature, Kurt Vonnegut blended science fiction, satire, and social commentary in his novels and essays. Also a graphic artist, Vonnegut illustrated some of his novels and stories. Born in Indianapolis in 1922, he died in New York in 2007. After studying for two years at Cornell University, Vonnegut enlisted in the U.S. Army and serve in Europe where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge and witnessed the devastation of Dresden as a prisoner of war. After the war, Vonnegut attended the University of Chicago as a graduate student in anthropology. He eventually earned his M.A. when the university accepted his bestselling book Cat's Cradle as his thesis. He worked at an array of jobs before his writing career took off, including newspaper reporter, car salesman, teacher, and corporate public relations staff.
