Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 1, Section 14 Summary

  • For a couple of years after this, our narrator teaches at the Writer's Workshop at the University of Iowa – which, by the way, is hugely famous. He teaches in the afternoon and writes his book on Dresden in the morning.
  • And somewhere in there, he gets a three-book contract with a man named Seymour Lawrence.
  • The first of those books? His book about Dresden. Which is this book.
