Look at the Birdie evokes a world in which squabbling couples, high school geniuses, misfit office workers, and small-town Lotharios struggle to adapt to changing technology, moral ambiguity, and unprecedented affluence. In Confido, a family learns the downside of confiding their deepest secrets into a magical invention. In Ed Luby's Key Club, a man finds himself in a Kafkaesque world of trouble after he runs afoul of the shady underworld boss who calls the shots in an upstate New York town. In Look at the Birdie, a quack psychiatrist turned 'murder counsellor' concocts a novel new outlet for his paranoid patients. The stories are cautionary they also brim with his trademark humour. Wry, ironic, satirical and poignant Look at the Birdie reflects the anxieties of the postwar era in which they were written and provides an insight into the development of Vonnegut's early style.

According to Vonnegut's alter ego, science-fiction writer Kilgore Trout a global timequake will occur in New York City on 13 February 2001. It is the moment when the universe suffers a crisis of conscience. Should it expand or make a great big bang? It decides to back up a decade to 1991, making everyone in the world endure ten years of deja vu and a total loss of free will-not to mention reliving every nanosecond of one of the tawdiest and most hollow decades. In 1996, dead centre of the 're-run' Vonnegut is wrestling again with Time-quake I, a book he couldn't write the first time and won't be able to now. As he struggles, he addresses, with his trademark wicked wit, the relationship between memory and deja vu, humanism, suicide, the Great Depression and World War II as the last generated character builders, the loss of American eloquence, the obsolescent thrill of reading books, and what 'extended family' really means.

First published on the anniversary of Kurt Vonnegut’s death, "Armageddon in Retrospect" is a collection of twelve new and unpublished writings on war and peace.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 humour, the pieces range from a visceral nonfiction recollection of the destruction of Dresden during World War II—a piece that is as timely today as it was then—to a painfully funny short story about three 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 as well as an assortment of his artwork, with an introduction by the author’s son, Mark Vonnegut. "Armageddon in Retrospect" says as much about the times in which we live as it does about the genius of the writer.
