Jailbird.
Delacorte Press, New York 1979 - First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half title page to fellow novelist Wayne Warga. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jailbird takes us into a fractured and comic, pure Vonnegut world of high crimes and misdemeanors in government and in the heart. This wry tale follows bumbling bureaucrat Walter F. Starbuck from Harvard to the Nixon White House to the penitentiary as Watergate's least known co-conspirator. But the humor turns dark when Vonnegut shines his spotlight on the cold hearts and calculated greed of the mighty, giving a razor-sharp edge to an unforgettable portait of power and politics in our times. "A gem. . . a mature, imaginative novel-possibly the best he has written. . . Jailbird is a guided tour de force of America. Take it" (Playboy). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
