Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr. might refer to himself now as an “undifferentiated wisp of nothingness.” The world is poorer for his ceasing to be someone in particular.

If you only ever read Cat’s Cradle or Slaughterhouse Five for school, consider reading (or re-reading) one of my favorites: Deadeye Dick or God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater.

I can’t name an author whose work I love more.

God Bless You, Mr. Vonnegut. Thank you.

Here’s a documentary on Vonnegut in eight segments, each about 8-minutes long. If you’re not a big reader but want to know why people make a big deal over Vonnegut, the film adaptation of Mother Night is very good.
