Bluebeard

A Novel
eBook
"Ranks with Vonnegut's best and goes one step beyond . . . joyous, soaring fiction."—The Atlanta Journal and Constitution
Broad humor and bitter irony collide in this fictional autobiography of Rabo Karabekian, who, at age seventy-one, wants to be left alone on his Long Island estate with the secret he has locked inside his potato barn. But then a voluptuous young widow badgers Rabo into telling his life story—and Vonnegut in turn tells us the plain, heart-hammering truth about man's careless fancy to create or destroy what he loves.
Praise for Bluebeard
"Vonnegut is at his edifying best."The Philadelphia Inquirer
"The quicksilver mind of Vonnegut is at it again. . . . He displays all his talents—satire, irony, ridicule, slapstick, and even a shaggy dog story of epic proportions."The Cincinnati Post

"[Kurt Vonnegut is] a voice you can trust to keep poking holes in the social fabric."San Francisco Chronicle

"It has the qualities of classic Bosch and Slaughterhouse Vonnegut. . . . Bluebeard is uncommonly feisty."USA Today

"Is Bluebeard good? Yes! . . . This is vintage Vonnegut—good wine from his best grapes."The Detroit News

"A joyride . . . Vonnegut is more fascinated and puzzled than angered by the human stupidities and contradictions he discerns so keenly. So hop in his rumble seat. As you whiz along, what you observe may provide some new perspectives."Kansas City Star
