Slaughterhouse-Five's main storyline revolves around the Dresden bombing. As a witness to the destruction, the main character questions the meaning of life and death. Traumatized by the events in Dresden, he can provide no answers. Kurt Vonnegut’s World War II classic was challenged, banned and burned across the United States from 1972 onward, and most recently in 2007 for its “explicit sexual scenes, violence, and obscene language.” If you are a collector of banned books, this novel is one you want on your library shelf.
