    I am so sorry to hear this news. Mother Night is one of my all-time favorite books.

    Even the weather is in mourning here in New Jersey — dusk-gray skies and unrelenting rain.

    Listen: Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time.

    One of the best openings ever.


    Miss you already, Kurt.

    like his books, ideas, and words live on. Vonnegut was on the Daily Show about a month or 2 ago and I was thrilled to see him still trading barbs with an obviously impressed Jon Stewart. I remember my first reading of Vonnegut and how confused I was until I “got” it. He was one of the few adult authors I always made time to read.
