Fall 2023


The novel Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut is often hailed as a classic anti-war novel due to its realistic portrayal of the devastation caused by war. But its creative use of fantastical elements from science fiction also show how trauma can “unstick” a human being from the natural order of things. The graphic novel adaptation, written by Ryan North with art by Albert Monteys, was published in 2020 and brings with it a fresh new way to enjoy this classic.
