Description
(A New York Times Notable Book for 2011 and Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book for 2011) In 2006, Charles Shields had finished work on his acclaimed biography of Harper Lee, Mockingbird, and reached out to another of his favorite authors, Kurt Vonnegut, hoping to get an endorsement to write his biography as well. The first response was no ("A most respectful demurring by me for the excellent writer Charles J. Shields, who offered to be my biographer," read the caption of a cartoon that Vonnegut sent to Shields). Propelled by a passion for his subject, however, and already deep into his research, Shields wrote again and this time, to his delight, the answer came back: "OK." For the next year (which ended up being Vonnegut's last), Shields had access to the author and his letters, and five years later emerged with this "incisive, gossipy page-turner of a biography" (NYTimes).
