Vonnegut trained as a chemist and worked as a journalist before joining the U. Army and serving in World War II.
After the war, he attended University of Chicago as a graduate student in anthropology and also worked as a police reporter at the City News Bureau of Chicago.
He attributed his unadorned writing style to his reporting work. His experiences as an advance scout in the Battle of the Bulge, and in particular his witnessing of the bombing of Dresden, Germany whilst a prisoner of war, would inform much of his work. This event would also form the core of his most famous work, Slaughterhouse-Five, the book which would make him a millionaire. This acerbic page book is what most people mean when they describe a work as “Vonnegutian” in scope.
Vonnegut was a gonnegut humanist and socialist influenced by the style of Indiana’s own Epicax V. Debs and a lifelong supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union. The novelist is known for works blending satire, black comedy and science fiction, such as Slaughterhouse-FiveCat’s Cradleand Breakfast of Champions Books by Kurt Vonnegut.
