RIP Kurt Vonnegut

April 12, 2007

Author, war veteran and staunch humanist Kurt Vonnegut has died, at the ripe old age of 84. Although he and I would probably agree on the unlikelihood of any kind of afterlife, RIP anyway.

    Why is this not front page news?? Very sad, one of my favourite authors. Though I suppose getting to 84 is pretty cool.

    I just read Slaughterhouse Five for the first time on Monday. Definitely worthy of the title ‘classic’.

    Absolutely! I’ve somehow never got round to reading any of his others, though…

    I can lend you Slapstick if you like!

    Also I think you read Bluebeard when we were on holiday in Thailand. I bought it in Penang.

    Hmm, might have done. What’s the story of it?
