Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007), the most important and influential representative of black humorous literature in the 20th century in the United States, and a postmodernist writer. His work expresses tragedy in the form of comedy, laughs in the face of disaster, absurdity, despair, and leads a generation through the American social life disrupted by war and greed in the second half of the 20th century. The New York Times calls him "anti- Cultural novelist. " Representative works include "The Cradle of Cats", "Abattoir No. 5", "Breakfast for Champions" and "Prisoner Bird". He once said humorously, "I know who I am, weighing a few pounds or two, and I write so well, it really offends everyone."
