Praise

“[Kurt Vonnegut] has never been more satirically on-target. . . . Nothing is spared.”People

“Our strongest writer . . . the most stubbornly imaginative.”—John Irving
 
“A gem . . . a mature, imaginative novel—possibly the best he has written . . . Jailbird is a guided tour de force of America. Take it!”Playboy

“A profoundly humane comedy . . . Jailbird definitely mounts up on angelic wings—in its speed, in its sparkle, and in its high-flying intent.”Chicago Tribune Book World
 
“Joyously inventive . . . gleams with the loony magic Vonnegut alone can achieve.”Cosmopolitan
 
“Vonnegut is our great apocalyptic writer, the closest thing we’ve had to a prophet since . . . Lenny Bruce.”Chicago Sun-Times
 
“Vonnegut at his impressive best. . . . His imaginative leaps alone . . . are worth the price of admission. . . . His far-reaching metaphysical and cultural concerns . . . are ultimately serious and worth our contemplation.”The Washington Post
 
“Vintage Vonnegut!”Time
 
“Is it entertaining? Every page of it. . . . Easily his best work of fictions since Slaughterhouse-Five.”—New York Daily News
 
“Life, in Vonnegut’s eyes, is as chaotic as ever . . . but Jailbird emanates serene control.”The Atlantic Monthly
 
“At his best . . . Vonnegut in very good form, tart, wry, often very funny.”New York Post
