Personal Quote:

A lot of people think I'm stupid because my sentences are so simple and my method is so direct. They think these are defeats. No. The point is to write as much as you know as quickly as possible. See more »

Trivia:

A soldier in the US Army during World War II, Vonnegut had been captured by German forces and imprisoned in a POW camp in Dresden, Germany. The infamous firebombing of Dresden occurred while he was there, and his survival of it and his experiences during it were the basis for his novel "Slaughterhouse-Five". See more »
