Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.(1922 - 2007)
  • The man, the myth, the legend. This is the man who gave us Breakfast of Champions and Cat’s Cradle, among about 15 other sardonic, random, humanistic, and highly influential novels.
  • This is the man who survived the Dresden firebombing in WWII and went on to write Slaughterhouse Five to tell the tale. This is the man who faced so much tragedy in his life – his mother’s suicide, the death of his sister and her husband (Vonnegut raised their children), his own attempted suicide…This is the man. May he rest in peace.
  • Let’s read “Harrison Bergeron” so we can admire his greatness some more.
