To be published on the first anniversary of Kurt Vonnegut's death, Armageddon in Retrospect is a collection of twelve new and unpublished writings on war and peace. Imbued with Vonnegut's trademark rueful humor, the pieces range from a visceral recollection of the destruction of Dresden during World War II to a painfully funny short story about three Army privates and their fantasies of the perfect first meal upon returning home from war, to a darker, more poignant story about the impossibility of shielding our children from the temptations of violence. Also included are Vonnegut's last speech and an introduction by the author's son, Mark Vonnegut. An essential contribution to discussion of humanity's tendency toward violence, Armageddon in Retrospect says as much about the times in which we live as it does about the genius of the writer.
