Jailbird, by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

  • Regular price $50.00


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 penitentary 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 portrait of power and politics in our times.

 

DJ unclipped, light wrinkling along edges of front inside panel, two small closed tears on bottom of front. Endpapers and pages clean and unmarked, tight in binding. Owners name in pen on front blue page.
