Death of a literary giant.

Uncategorized

  Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. died last night at the age of 84. Vonnegut wrote 14 novels including Breakfast of Champions, Slaughterhouse 5 and Cat’s Cradle.

I’ve read them all and count him as one of the greatest authors to have ever lived.  His style, humor and profoundly unique views on life struck a chord with me from the first page.

Truly sad that he has become, like Billy Pilgrim, unstuck in time and he won’t be giving us new pleasures.  Time to dust off the library and start falling under his spell one more time.

Hi Ho Mr. Vonnegut, rest in peace.
