A novel by the author of SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE. Fictional autobiography of Rabo Karabekian who at age seventy-one, wants to be left alone on his Hamptons, Long Island estate with the secret he has locked inside his potato barn. Vonnegut tells the plain, heart-hammering truth about man's careless fancy to create or destroy what he loves. "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.

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.
