    Jailbird eBook ↠ Paperback jailbird book, Jailbird KindleIf I selected one passage to tell what this book is abut I’d pick this “I still believe that peace and plenty and happiness can be worked out in some way I am a fool”The author is famous for his biting satire and cynicism and as one reviewer says in the blurbs “nothing is spared” It’s loaded with political satire and black humor The back cover gives a summary that I will use so I don’t give away too much of the plot “Jailbird takes us into a fractured and comic pure Vonnegut world of high crimes and misdemeanors in government—an

    Jailbird eBook ↠ Paperback jailbird book, Jailbird KindleNot one of the better known Vonnegut novels and significantly different than most of his other collection This is perhaps his most serious workJailbird lacks the absurdist bent characterized by so much of his other satire and is conspicuously somber throughout most of the book though it still features Vonnegut’s fast style and light approach This might also be his most politically dogmatic work eschewing his ubiuitous humor and playful wisdom with a staid thoughtful passion for rights needing to be championedAll the same he tackles some heavy subjects and embraces the themes with a mature though still wry humor 2019 re readI had a conversation some time ago about the best books of Joseph Conrad and how some people would be in the Heart of Darkness school that’s me others

    Jailbird eBook ↠ Paperback jailbird book, Jailbird Kindle “I was making my mind as blank as possible you see since the past was so embarrassing and the future so terrifying” ― Kurt Vonnegut JailbirdSometimes I'm not sure if we are running recklessly toward a Philip K Dick future or a Kurt Vonnegut future Sometimes it sure seems like a bit of both Both authors like to play with ideas of fascism I think part of the draw for me of these two authors right now is how they sensed Vonnegut especially in this book the absolute absurdity and reality of economic greed political malfeasance incompetence power and the inability of the huddled socialist masses to make much of a damn bit of differencePart of Vonnegut's appeal is

    Jailbird eBook ↠ Paperback jailbird book, Jailbird KindleI could never choose a favorite Vonnegut book but when he died recently it was Jailbird I picked up to reread and feel his humanism and his compassion for all of flawed mankind To me the underlying theme of Vonnegut's work is the importance of fundamental kindness Even when Vonnegut it as his most negative about a situation his conviction that compassion and generosity would be enough to fix whatever problem he's dwelling on shines through His disappointment that this approach is all too seldom used is the root of his cynicism but it is never disheartening to read because of that glimpse of childlike hope that we really could learn to be kind to one another

    Jailbird eBook ↠ Paperback jailbird book, Jailbird KindleI don't mind so much the Republicans who embrace greed and general douche baggeryBut it's those Republicans who cloak themselves in smug moral self righteousness the ones who invoke God and think somehow Jesus would be on board with their selfish hypocrisy that really annoy meIn the intro to Jailbird Vonnegut refers to a letter he had recently received from a high school reader who told Vonnegut he had read almost everything by him and wanted to share the single idea he found at the core of Vonnegut's life work Love may fail but courtesy will prevail And he's right; that's the message at the heart of everything Vonnegut has written including his recently published Letters This most human and humane of authors who was an atheist and whose books have been burned by these same smug sanctimonious conservative nutjobs has a better handle than they do on the gospel of Christ wh
