Vonnegut

Of all the authors out there whose work I have to admit to never having read at all, Kurt Vonnegut is probably the one of whom I'm most embarrassed to say that I've never read. And when I say I've never read him, I mean it -- not a single word, to the best of my knowledge. This bothers me because plenty of people whose judgment I trust on such topics speak very highly of Vonnegut.

So I'll read him, OK? Someday.

Oh, Vonnegut is brilliant. I'm going to reread Slaughterhouse Five soon, and I highly recommend it, Cats Cradle, Sirens of Titan...well, everything.

I was pleased to have seen him speak and read from his work at, if memory serves me right, Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky.

A short called Harrison Bergeron.

Cat's Cradle was my first Vonnegut, followed by several others. It's been so long ago. SF with enough irony to sink a battleship. You'll be glad you read his stuff.
