Description:
New York: Delta, 1970. Trade Paperback. Delta 440-08029, seventh printing. No ISBN. Near Fine book. Lightly tanned. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Light toning and reading wear to cover. Lower read corner creased. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. See photos. 186 pages. One of the world's great antiwar books. Centering on the infamous firebombing of Dresden, Billy Pilgrim's odyssey through time reflects the mythic journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we fear most. This book was one of the first literary acknowledgments that homosexual men were among the victims of the Holocaust. It was the subject of many attempts at censorship due to its irreverent tone, purportedly obscene content and depictions of sex, American soldiers' use of profanity, and perceived heresy.
