Vonnegut, Kurt. (1987). Bluebeard. 318 pgs.
“Bluebeard ranks with Vonnegut’s most imaginative works. Broad humor and bitter irony collide in this fictional autobiography of Rabo Karabekian, who, at seventy-one, wants to be left alone at his Long Island estate with the secret he has locked inside his potato barn. But then a voluptuous young widow badgers him into telling his life story-and Vonnegut tells us the plain, heart-hammering truth about man’s careless fancy to create or destroy what he loves.”--From the back cover of Bluebeard.
