Mother Night

by Kurt Vonnegut
Mother Night - Kurt Vonnegut 7.00   23

In Mother Night, Vonnegut makes fun of sex, sin, and motherhood; of war and peace, of the FBI and Communists; and the Nazis, too. And no one but Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., could have created Howard Campbell, Jr., the American who became a notorious Nazi and survived the war to mock all decent people. This atrocious man a hero? This insatiable fiend (who boasted of knowing more than 49 ways to make love) really nothing more than a happy Rotarian? It could only happen in the Silly Putty world of Mother Night, where the only reality is unreality.
