After the slaughterhouse

January 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

Aside from what was required in high school and college, I have read the works of very few authors of fictional works. Perhaps regrettably so, but few writers hold my attention for long enough to develop an interest in what happens to the characters or the outcome of the story. Kurt Vonnegut was a rare exception. More than one broke & rainy day was spent at Powell’s bookstore in downtown Portland reading Slaughterhouse 5 and Cat’s Cradle. Cigarettes, musty old books and Vonnegut…ah, the memories.

At any rate, check out the letter written from KV, Jr. to the “people” shortly after his rescue from Nazis. And so it goes.
