Vonnegut, Kurt [Jr.].
"SMERDYAKOV": Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print.
(Lexington: Petro III Graphics,
1996). First edition. One of 99 SIGNED & NUMBERED copies. Two-color, 8.5" x 12", on white artists' paper printed in yellow and black. A bearded Russian gentleman with brilliant yellow skin and deep, dark black beard (who has, perhaps, over-imbibed); presumably Vonnegut's imagining of Dostoyevsky's Smerdyakov from THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV, as he mentions the book in SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE: Rosewater tells Billy at one point that that everything there is to know about life is in "The Brothers Karamazov." Fine.
