Read full description of the books:



I know a lot of people aren't very fond of this play, they wish Vonnegut would've stuck with novels. And who can blame them when his novels are so glorious?

But personally, I thought Wanda June was brilliant! It hilarious, dark, poignant, and supremely hopeful (just like all Vonnegut's work.) I rather enjoyed the fact it was in play format rather than novel or short story. It's an interesting experiment. The characters feel alive in a slightly different way, and the jokes land harder.

While Kurt left plays well alone afterwards I'm left wanting more of his writing in this format.

Read information about the author

Ebook Happy Birthday, Wanda June read Online! Kurt Vonnegut, Junior was an American novelist, satirist, and most recently, graphic artist. He was recognized as New York State Author for 2001-2003.

He was born in Indianapolis, later the setting for many of his novels. He attended Cornell University from 1941 to 1943, where he wrote a column for the student newspaper, the Cornell Daily Sun. Vonnegut trained as a chemist and worked as a journalist before joining the U.S. Army and serving in World War II.

After the war, he attended University of Chicago as a graduate student in anthropology and also worked as a police reporter at the City News Bureau of Chicago. He left Chicago to work in Schenectady, New York in public relations for General Electric. He attributed his unadorned writing style to his reporting work.

His experiences as an advance scout in the Battle of the Bulge, and in particular his witnessing of the bombing of Dresden, Germany whilst a prisoner of war, would inform much of his work. This event would also form the core of his most famous work, Slaughterhouse-Five, the book which would make him a millionaire. This acerbic 200-page book is what most people mean when they describe a work as "Vonnegutian" in scope.

Vonnegut was a self-proclaimed humanist and socialist (influenced by the style of Indiana's own Eugene V. Debs) and a lifelong supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union.


The novelist is known for works blending satire, black comedy and science fiction, such as Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), Cat's Cradle (1963), and Breakfast of Champions (1973)
