November 29, 2011The initial general evaluation offered by Sumner about Vonnegut’s novels: “an impassioned and sometimes brokenhearted meditation on the American Dream.” Each novel took into account, implicitly or explicitly, the political movements within the America that Vonnegut, a World War II veteran, loved dearly and patriotically. In fact, the epigraph from Vonnegut chosen by Sumner to open the book states: “The function of an artist is to respond to his own time.”

November 21, 2011"It is hard to build a career by saying or writing nice things about people. And yet, not only was Kurt beloved, he can be credited for freeing American literature from some of the stiffness and formality that had always marked it previously. He made the province of American literature much less provincial."
