Jailbird by Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut's literary reputation is as solid as a California Redwood and a recent re-reading of his mid-career novel Jailbird left that tradition firmly intact. The simple plot revolves around the release of Walter F. Starbuck from a low security prison after being convicted of playing a minor role in the Watergate scandal. The decidedly autobiographical sketches Vonnegut paints of Starbuck's life are intertwined with a rather factual history of the Labor Movement in the United States. Funny, witty, harsh and brilliant, Vonnegut's complexity is as simple as life itself.
