Look at the Birdie is a collection of fourteen previously unpublished short stories from one of the most original writers in all of American fiction. In this series of perfectly rendered vignettes, written just as he was starting to find his comic voice, Kurt Vonnegut paints a warm, wise, and often funny portrait of life in postWorld War II Americaa world where squabbling couples, high school geniuses, misfit office workers, and small-town lotharios struggle to adapt to changing technology, moral ambiguity, and unprecedented affluence. Hello, Red is a sharply observed homecoming tale in which embittered merchant sailor Red Mayo returns to his small town after nine years at sea. There he confronts the man who ended up marrying the only woman Red ever lovedand stakes a claim on a certain something he left behind. Hello, Red and the thirteen other never-before-published pieces that comprise Look at the Birdie serve as an unexpected gift for devoted readers who thought that Kurt Vonneguts unique voice had been stilled foreverand provide a terrific introduction to his short fiction for anyone who has yet to experience his genius.Other stories from Look at the Birdie available as single-story e-books:On sale September 29, 2009:The Petrified AntsOn sale October 20, 2009:ConfidoFUBARShout About It from the HousetopsEd Luby's Key ClubA Song for SelmaHall of MirrorsThe Nice Little PeopleLittle Drops of WaterThe Honor of a NewsboyLook at the Birdie (Short Story)King and Queen of the UniverseThe Good Explainer
