Vonnegut, Kurt  
Novels 1987-1997: Bluebeard / Hocus Pocus / Timequake
Bluebeard: The colorful tale of a phenomenally gifted realist painter who betrayed his artistic vision for commercial success. Now in his seventies, he writes his memoirs and plots his revenge on the worldly forces that conspired to corrupt his talent.

Hocus Pocus: A freewheeling prison memoir by a Vietnam vet and disgraced academic, speaking to a range of still-burning issues, including free speech, racism, environmental calamity, deindustrialization, and globalization.

Timequake: Part science fiction yarn (starring perennial protagonist Kilgore Trout), part diary of the mid-1990s (starring Vonnegut himself), fusing satirical fantasy and personal essay.
