Signed and dated (May 11, 1998) on the half title page by Kurt Vonnegut. Additionally, Vonnegut has drawn a caricature self-portrait in profile on the page; his signature and date are within the full-page drawing. "American novelist, satirist, graphic artist. Elements of pathos, fantasy, didacticism and dark humor merge in Vonnegut's novels to provide an arresting mixture of entertainment and biting social critique. Among a select group of writers that includes Joseph Heller, Norman Mailer and E. L. Doctorow, Vonnegut has helped to extend the range of the American novel through his innovations in tone, style and form. The best of his novels have left an indelible print on our literary landscape, inspiring generations of imitators, but no equals. His landmark novel 'Slaughterhouse Five' was recently ranked at No. 18 on the Modern Library's list of the top 100 novels of the 20th century." - New York State Writers Institute.
