While Mortals Sleep is a smart, clear-eyed collection of stories from one of the most original writers in American fiction.
Set in trailers, bars and factories, Vonnegut conjures up a world where men and machines, art and artifice, fame and fortune become curiously twisted and characters pit their dreams and fears against a cruel and comically indifferent world.
Written early in his career, and never published before, these tightly plotted stories are infused with Vonnegut's distinctive blend of observation, imagination and scabrous humour.
This collection features an introduction by Dave Eggers.
