In this series of perfectly rendered vignettes, written just as he was starting to find his comic voice, Kurt Vonnegut paints a warm, wise, and often funny portrait of life in post–World War II America—a world where squabbling couples, high school geniuses, misfit office workers, and small-town lotharios struggle to adapt to changing technology, moral ambiguity, and unprecedented affluence.Joe Cunningham thinks hes going to Chicago to see a world-renowned specialist and find out why he and his wife cant have kids. But the explanation the doctor provides is as unwelcome as it is unexpected.The Good Explainer and the thirteen other never-before-published pieces that comprise Look at the Birdie serve as an unexpected gift for devoted readers who thought that Kurt Vonneguts unique voice had been stilled forever—and provide a terrific introduction to his short fiction for anyone who has yet to experience his genius.
