Authors: Said Mentak (University Mohamed 1, Oujda, Morocco) 
Book Description:
When the fictional is fused with the real, the theoretical with the practical, and the line demarcating these spheres of knowledge is blurred there should be a new understanding of the function of literature in post-modern times. The book provides an essential practice of understanding postmodernist fiction by minutely tackling the work of one of the most widely read among the few grandmasters of American letters, Kurt Vonnegut, whose masterpieces, Catís Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, and Breakfast of Champions, are dealt with in a postmodernist vein. The work raises questions as to the validity of traditional interpretation of a writer who has added the fantastic to the amazing fusion of reality and fiction without losing the Vonnegut touch.
