The fictional memoirs of an American awaiting trial in Israel for broadcasting Nazi propaganda to his countrymen from Germany during World War II. Unbeknownst to his accusers, his broadcasts actually contained coded Allied communications as part of the US war effort. What makes this not just another spy novel—filled with plot twists and adventure though it is—is the subtle, sarcastic humour afforded by Vonnegut’s uniquely dry, detached, and simple style of writing.
