New book introduces the never-before-published collection of 120 drawings by Kurt Vonnegut
An introduction by Nanette Vonnegut gives readers an inside view of life with her father.
NEW YORK, NY.- Author and satirist Kurt Vonnegut always drew, and many of his novels contain sketches. But only now will the world see a wide selection of his personal drawings, chosen by his daughter, visual artist Nanette Vonnegut.

Kurt Vonnegut Drawings collects 120 varied and captivating visual pieces by the renowned author. Vonnegut’s aesthetic is as idiosyncratic and defiant of tradition as his books; it reveals a touch of cubism, mixed with a Paul Klee gift for caricature, a Calder-like ability to balance color and line, and more than a touch of 1960s psychedelic sensibility.

An introduction by Nanette Vonnegut gives readers an inside view of life with her father, and an essay by friend and scholar Peter Reed explains Vonnegut’s artistic journey and closely analyzes his visual art. A new perspective on the mind of a creative genius, Kurt Vonnegut Drawings will be a must-have for the author’s legion of fans, both old and new.

Paint and weapons have more in common than I previously realized. They both suggest to their owners surprising and possibly noteworthy
things which might be done with them. —Kurt Vonnegut

Nanette Vonnegut, a painter and writer, is the daughter of Kurt Vonnegut. She lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Peter Reed is an emeritus professor of English at the University of Minnesota. A longtime friend of Vonnegut, he has written extensively on the author’s work.
