On The Day After Kurt Vonneget Died

After read­ing the news of Kurt Von­negut’s death, I decid­ed it was about time I got with it. I’ve nev­er read any­thing by him over 1,000 words long but at lunch today I went and picked up a paper­back copy of Slaugh­ter­house-Five. Bet­ter late than nev­er, I sup­pose. I’ve had a lot of friends rec­om­mend that book over the years and I’m bump­ing some of the oth­er books I’ve been sit­ting on for a while to read it first. Von­negut was 84 years old and is sur­vived by his sev­en chil­dren, his sec­ond wife, and legions of ador­ing fans.
