Kurt Vonnegut, American author and icon of intellectual wit and well-meaning misanthropy, is noted for his satirical novels that combine social commentary, dark humor, and science-fictional elements. His best-known work is Slaughterhouse-Five which is based in part on Vonnegut’s World War II experience of being a prisoner of war in Dresden, Germany. Vonnegut was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Armistice Day 1922 and died in 2007.
