Summary
Rackstraw (professor emeritus, University of Northern Iowa) met author Kurt Vonnegut while a student in his class at the Iowa Writer's Workshop in 1965. Their brief romance matured into a lifelong friendship. Here, she offers a unique perspective on how Vonnegut's life shaped his most famous works, and portrays a deeply human man who looked for the humor in life to survive. Vonnegut's letters to Rackstraw, many never before published, reveal details about his creative process and his values. The book is illustrated with b&w photos, letters and notes from Vonnegut, and Vonnegut's own drawings. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
