Kurt Vonnegut may be known best for his novels such as Cat’s Cradle and Slaughterhouse Five, but between 1978 to 1998 he also penned a series of political articles for The Nation, 12 of which have are being released by eBook Nation in the digital volume Vonnegut by the Dozen.
In his essays, which he sent to The Nation once or twice a year, Vonnegut presents his political observations and commentary in his signature, brilliantly simple style. The 12 essays include “Hypocrites You Always Have With You” (1980) and “Letters to the Young” (1982). The collection also features an introduction by Richard Lingeman, a senior editor of The Nation.
