. In fact, it was during the 1960s, a time of radical youth movements — antiwar

For instance, the events in Slaughterhouse-Five are not told chronologically; an
episode in the present triggers an episode in the past or into the future. Even its
title page is radically different from other novels' title pages: To its supplemental
