Summary, etc.:
Kurt Vonnegut's 'explosive meditation' of a novel Breakfast of Champions (1973) is subtitled Goodbye Blue Monday!. It is peppered with simple, childlike illustrations drawn by the author, and it tells a crazy-quilt story that eventually defies the constraints of the novel format itself. All of this seems to constitute an act of self-liberation, and it is: Vonnegut overhauling his creative world, breathing deeply and toying with the very nature of the novel.
