Slaughterhouse Five, Or The Children's Crusade
Title available in paperback?:Yes
Description of book: I think it would be great to honor one if Indiana's most popular writers, who recently died in 2007, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Certainly Slaughterhouse Five is a good reflection of a revolution in thought, in terms of the literary devices he uses and his creation of the "dark humor" movement. Also a great historical peice as it chronicles his personal experience as a prisoner of war in Germany during WWII, although the book is overall a fictional work.
