Kurt Vonnegut



When I woke up this morning, I am wondering if the Mets made a miraculous comeback. I fell asleep before the game ended. I was exhausted from a long day of work and some time at the batting cage. Then Ani tells me that Kurt Vonnegut had died.

I had started reading Vonnegut's books when I was older. I borrowed a book from the library "God Bless You Dr. Kevorkian". I loved his easy style and subversive humor. The last book of his I read was "fates worse than death" an autobiography written as a series of short stories.

If you want to read a great book may I recommend "Blue Beard" its not one of Vonnegut's most known books, but is one of my favorites.



But I guess you can't go wrong with Slaughterhouse 5 or Cat's Cradle.

I know that Kurt is up in heaven looking down on us today, and smiling. That was one of his favorite jokes.
