In a plot-scrambling display of virtuosity, we follow Pilgrim simultaneously through all phases of his life, concentrating on his (and Vonneguts) shattering experience as an American prisoner of war who witnesses the firebombing of Dresden.

Slaughterhouse-Five is not only Vonneguts most powerful book, it is as important as any written since 1945. Like Catch- 22, it fashions the authors experiences in the Second World War into an eloquent and deeply funny plea against butchery in the service of authority. Slaughterhouse-Five boasts the same imagination, humanity, and gleeful appreciation of the absurd found in Vonneguts other works, but the books basis in rock-hard, tragic fact gives it a unique poignancy--and humor.
