内容紹介

A loving, intimate memoir from a lifelong friend of Kurt Vonnegut, including photos and never-before-published correspondence

When Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. ducked into his classroom at the Iowa Writer’s Workshop in September of 1965, his jokes drew only weak laughter and a few rolled eyes. But workshop student Loree Rackstraw was quietly impressed by this “great bear of a man” and his down-to-earth sensibilities about writing.

That fall, an impossible romance began between the then-unknown author and his student—a brief affair that matured into a joyful, lifelong friendship. Rackstraw distills four decades of memories and Vonnegut’s letters to her into an affectionate memoir that crackles with the creative energy of one of America’s most beloved writers.

Rackstraw’s unique perspective on Vonnegut’s life and how it shaped his famous works portrays a deeply humane man who looked for the humor and absurdity in life in order to survive. And then there are Vonnegut’s own letters: Whether energetic about new projects or frustrated with the “game” of writing and selling “a gazoolian copies,” Vonnegut writes with the playful imagination and generous, accessible brilliance that have always been his trademarks.
 

レビュー


Entertainment Weekly
, 3/20/09

“When Love as Always, Kurt is at its best, the ‘love’ in Rackstraw's title seems to refer not just to Vonnegut's love for her, but his love for all of us.”

Curled Up with a Good Book

“[Rackstraw’s] insider descriptions of the great author are at times delightful and always insightful.”

Wall Street Journal
, 3/16/09

“Rackstraw’s Vonnegut-focused memoir…gives us a chance to track Vonnegut’s private life and public persona and, inevitably, to revisit his literary reputation.”

ForeWord
, May/June 2009

“As only one who knew him well could, Rackstraw conjures a robust portrait of this paradoxical legend, drawing on their voluminous correspondence to provide singular insights that both contradict and celebrate his iconic status…Rackstraw’s forte is finding that satisfying balance of objectivity and subjectivity that memoirists must bring to their work…Artfully blending her confidante’s understanding of Vonnegut’s kaleidoscopic personality with an academician’s assessment of his timeless and universal themes, Rackstraw manages to offer both a dignified testimonial to a literary master and a loving tribute to a lifelong friend.”


Chronicle of Higher Education
, 3/20/09

“A memoir that honors the man and his works.”

San Diego Union-Tribune
, 3/22/09

“An affectionate memoir.”

Library Journal
, 4/15/09

“Rackstraw appreciably enhances Vonnegut’s renown with her own interpretation of the events of Vonnegut’s life and with excerpts of his letters spanning four decades…Rackstraw reveals many insights into Vonnegut—his marriages, friendships, sense of the comic and the ridiculous, and melancholy, which later developed into severe depression…Rackstraw’s compelling portrait is recommended."

Daily Iowan
, 4/9/09

“A biography of Vonnegut’s life and a more intimate portrait of a man most readers only know through his semiautobiographical fiction.”

Film.com

“It's interesting to see the struggles of a literary giant through the eyes of a close friend.”

Newsweek
, 4/27/09

“Rackstraw does not come across as a mercenary, fame-grubbing type.”

Maisonneuve
, Spring 2009

“When Kurt Vonnegut said, ‘write to please just one person’ there’s a good chance he meant longtime friend and love interest Loree Rackstraw.”


Cedar Rapids Gazette
, 4/12/09

“A major event for Vonnegut lovers…Reveal[s] some interesting details.”

Minneapolis City Pages
, 4/16/09

“Reads like a who’s-who of the male, American literary canon of the second half of the 20th century…Aside from the glittering glimpses into the private lives of these literary giants, her memoir…is a study in both relationships that seem to defy easy categorization (like Rackstraw and Vonnegut’s) and the role of the artist in modern society…Rackstraw gives us a rich and complicated Vonnegut.”

Shepherd Express
, 4/20/09

“The "tell-all" aspects…are handled with a dignity and old-fashioned discretion.”

New York Post “Page Six”, 11/14/08
“Vonnegut's private correspondence with a student he bedded in the mid-'60s is about to be bared for the first time.”
