Book number... oh heck I've lost count.. plus two

A Man Without a Country A Man Without a Country by Kurt Vonnegut

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
If you like Vonnegut you will probably like this pseudo biographical set of very choppy ramblings. It was neither as scathing as I was led to believe by the NPR review, nor is it anywhere close to being a principled response to the abandonment of the sovereignty of the individual that it could have been. Vonnegut contradicts himself frequently on political matters, but condemns only the administration in power at the time for the actions which have been taken by both parties since FDR, who he not merely forgives for the same actions, but celebrates and worships. Still, fairly entertaining with some good points being made about living. Borrow it, but don't buy it...
