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.

His dates? 1913–1960 A.D.
Do you realize that all great literature—MobyDick, Huckleberry Finn, A Farewell to Arms, TheScarlet Letter, The Red Badge of Courage, The Iliadand The Odyssey, Crime and Punishment, The Bible, and “The Charge of the Light Brigade”—are all about what a bummer it is to be a human being? (Isn’t it such a relief to have somebody say that?)

I know what women want: a whole lot of people to talk to. What do they want to talk about? They want to talk about everything.
What do men want? They want a lot of pals, and they wish people wouldn’t get so mad at them.
