Jailbird


Jailbird

Рейтинг: 
Jailbird takes us into a fractured and comic, pure Vonnegut world of high crimes and misdemeanors in government - and in the heart. This wry tale follows bumbling bureaucrat Walter F. Starbuck from Harvard to the Nixon White House to the penitentiary as Watergate's least known co-conspirator. But the humor turns dark when Vonnegut shines his spotlight on the cold hearts and calculated greed of the mighty, giving a razor-sharp edge to an unforgettable portrait of power and politics in our times.
