Happy Birthday, Kurt

Kurt VonnegutKurt Vonnegut died just five years ago, but he was born, fittingly, today in 1922. Fittingly, I say, because he was a veteran, and it was his experience in WWII - specifically and famously surviving the fire-bombing of Dresden and living through the horrific aftermath - that shaped his writing.

New collections of his early and unpublished or uncollected works are now available. Get them.
