A Man Without A Country is Kurt Vonnegut's hilariously funny and razor-sharp look at life, art, politics, himself and the condition of the soul of America today. Written over the last five years in the form of a loose memoir, with the examples of Mark Twain, Jesus Christ, Abraham Lincoln, and a saintly doctor named Ignaz Semmelweis powerfully in mind, A Man without a Country is an intimate and tender communication from one individual to his fellow humans — sometimes kidding, at other times despairing, always searching. It is illustrated throughout with Vonnegut's trademark artwork.

    We are not born with imagination. It has to be developed by teachers, by parents.

    I am a man without a country, except for the librarians and a Chicago paper called In These Times.
    Sanzhar Surshanovhas quoted2 years ago
    No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful.
    If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph:

    THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD WAS MUSIC
